Stirrups ‘n Strides has a vision. Empower, enrich and inspire. And that’s exactly what they do, every day.
Their approach is pretty straightforward: to help individuals heal through the power of horsemanship. By fostering relationships between humans and horses, Stirrups ‘n Strides provides incredible therapeutic results for hundreds of people with physical, mental and emotional hurdles.
The real beauty of the ‘Strides mission is in how horse and human work together to grow and heal. Nurturing a psychological bond between horse and rider isn’t just wholesome and enjoyable for both. It also promotes self-confidence and control, attentiveness, physical activity, and relationship building skills. Most of all though, the process is cathartic—it inspires a mutual respect, trust, and admiration that is spiritually nourishing and immensely therapeutic.
The Stirrups ‘n Strides Therapeutic Riding Center operates out of Citra, Florida, and is even a certified Olympic Training Facility. But the people they help have come from all over, and continue on, all over, to do incredible things. All thanks, at least in part, to the incredible healing made possible through the special bond between humans and horses.
