Rocky Mountain Riding Therapy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit therapeutic horseback riding program located in South Boulder. We work with children and adults with a variety of physical, cognitive and/or emotional needs, providing therapy and recreational opportunities that involve interaction with horses.
Our goal is to help each rider reach their fullest potential as a human being and as a horseperson. Riding not only improves muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination and motor development, but also the rider's confidence and emotional well-being.
Rocky Mountain provides services each year to 150 riders ranging in age from 3 years old through teenagers and seniors. Our riders have a variety of disabilities including Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, visual and hearing impairments and Down Syndrome.
RMRT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit therapeutic horseback riding program located in south Boulder. Our program relies heavily upon volunteers and donations to provide our services to our riders at a reasonable cost and to keep our special horses happy and healthy.
Being around horses positively affects people. Riding can improve strength, balance, postural control, muscle tone, coordination, sensory processing, speech, motor development, cognitive development, confidence and emotional well being, among other things.
