Simple Changes offers therapeutic riding lessons and hippotherapy. Our programs are full, but we would be happy to add you to our waiting list.

Therapeutic Riding

Our therapeutic riding lessons teach horseback riding skills to individuals with disabilities. Physical benefits include improved muscle tone, gait, balance and posture. Cognitive skills increase through following directions and sequencing.

Rider forms (click on link below) may be submitted online, by fax or by mail. All rider forms, except for the physician form, must be submitted in order to be placed on the waiting list.

Once a place becomes available, potential riders will be invited for an evaluation ride. The physician form must be completed and submitted prior to the evaluation ride.

Therapeutic riding lessons are $60 per lesson and riders register per session.


Simple Changes’ hippotherapy program is run by a licensed physical therapist and uses the movement of the horse to facilitate treatment. Individual client sessions are conducted by a licensed occupational or physical therapist.
