Senior Saddles

Men and Women age 55 and over

The silver saddles program focuses on stretching, strengthening, posture, equitation and horsemanship. Lessons are structured for multiple levels of instruction from beginner and intermediate to more advanced riders. Offering a multi-generational layer to the demographics of the therapeutic horsemanship program while staying true to our mission and core values. 


The one-hour group sessions are geared to meet the individual goals and needs of each Silver Saddle participants. This program not only offers a way for our seniors to build core strength, improve muscle tone, build confidence and improve balance, but it also gives them the opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy the fresh air and simply have fun! 


Absolutely no experience is necessary to participate in Silver Saddles. Beginners who have never been in the saddle are introduced to riding in a safe, positive manner. The opportunity to bond with friendly, willing horses allows them to learn basic horsemanship skills while building confidence in a trusting partnership. As skill sets progress, participants have opportunities to ride more advanced horses and work on more complex skills.
