He is an amazing child and you are helping to bring that side out into the open." -Chris Christensen, grandmother of a Changing Leads participant

Giving Activity

Mission

At Hearts & Horses Therapeutic Riding Center, our mission is to enhance physical, cognitive and emotional wellbeing through equine partnerships.

Background Statement

Hearts & Horses began in 1997 to address a community gap in services for individuals with special needs. Starting with a handful of riders and one horse, we currently serve 165 riders weekly, own a 23-acre ranch, house 31 equine partners, and have one of Larimer County's largest volunteer programs.

Our accomplishments are possible given our unwavering commitment to high standards of excellence, innovative personalized therapeutic services, research collaborations, leadership and training, outstanding volunteer programs, and community partnerships. One of the cornerstones of our success has been tailoring our therapeutic activities to meet individual participant needs. Thanks to our diverse programing we are able to meet the needs of a huge cross-section of our community. Children and adults with physical and cognitive impairments, youth at-risk, individuals with Alzheimer's, and veterans are all meeting life goals thanks to our services.
