Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the lives of people with disabilities through the healing power of horses.

Organization History

The Right Step, Inc. was established in April of 2008 by the owners of Coventry Farms, a full-service hunter/jumper barn. It was formally incorporated as a non-profit in December 2008. They were looking for a way to give back to the community and had a population of aging school horses who could no longer jump but would benefit from regular low impact work. A therapeutic riding program was the perfect solution! Our clients with disabilities benefit from riding and the horses benefit from having such a great job (and the carrots and apples that many clients bring after lessons!).

Testimonials

My grandson couldn't stand without falling and would rock (stimming) a lot before he started at The Right Step. Now, he is 3 yr old and can walk his horse around without falling and he rides without a back rider! He was completely nonverbal and now he can say 10 words clearly! Way to go Kris and Karin! Damian loves you both as well as Vinnie and German!

Excerpt from letter to Sheryl Clossen, Program Director and Board Member: "I recently read in the Your Hub section of The Denver Post about you and your organization's efforts to bring joy to the special needs children in our community. I would like to commend you for this truly wonderful undertaking! It is really a special thing to know that your efforts directly result in happiness and confidence building for these children....Therapeutic horse-riding is a unique and wonderful way to improve the lives' of our kids in special need."
