Support Therapeutic Riding and have a great time with our Cowboy Ride-A-Thon!

When:  July 4 – Sept. 6, 2021

Where: Anywhere!  Trails, arena, road…

How: Just click on the link below to make a donation or sign up as a rider.

What:   Riders will be setting their own 10 mile course and Riding For a Cause. Riders can simply saddle up, set their own route and ride for ten miles alone or with friends. Ride a horse, a bike, or a motorcycle.  Each rider is encouraged to gather $1,000 in pledges from friends, family and supporters of the Therapeutic Riding Program (although donations of any amount are gratefully accepted). The program needs $65,000 to continue its life changing work of helping students with emotional and physical needs heal through the joy of horses.  Certified instructors and mental health professionals help students with diagnoses such as autism, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. We hope our community will support this Ride-A-Thon and assure that the Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding Program can continue its important work.

“This program is amazing and life changing!  My son is nonverbal, but now he says, “thank you” to his horse and everyone at the Program!” – Mother of new student.

“This program changed my son.  It changed our family.  My son wouldn’t have grown into the young man he is without this program, and we are forever grateful.” – Mother of past student.

You can help this valuable therapeutic riding program which serves students throughout northern Santa Barbara County by: volunteering as a rider or pledging to sponsor a rider. Riders are encouraged take pictures or videos so that we can share in the fun and beauty that surrounds us.
