The Ridgebury Riders is what we call all of our riders, regardless of age, experience, neuro-diversity or riding ability. Being a Ridgebury Rider means that you have the opportunity to develop at your own pace, working with our instructors, therapists and amazing horses.
Ridgebury Riders is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports mental and physical health through animal-assisted therapies. Our mission is to increase the health and well-being of people with intellectual, social, or physical challenges, and to build a supportive and optimistic environment for our riders, their families and friends, and our community. Ridgebury Riders was founded in 2021 and is headquartered at Ridgebury Farms, a 56-acre property that includes 2 riding barns, 38 horses, and several chickens, goats, and sheep.
Ridgebury Riders is part of Ridgebury Farms. The five-member board of directors and the advisory board are active in the community and the program, and are committed to the longevity and impact of our programs.
