Horseback Riding

Youthtowne Riders Program

The Youthtowne Riders Facility offers a free equestrian program for area youth and for youth from our sponsored schools in low income areas. 

The focus of our riding program is on Dressage. In addition to ring work, our students also have the opportunity to go on trail rides, participate in shows, and attend field trips.  

At the Youthtowne Riders Program young people are learning as much about themselves as they are learning about horses.  Amazingly, learning how to achieve specific goals with a horse often translates into learning life skills that will stay with them far beyond our stables.  Our students are challenged to take on real responsibilities.  We watch them grow in self-confidence and ability and take great pride in their individual achievements.
