Mission

Grace Lake's mission is to provide therapeutic horsemanship to people with disabilities and others in need of hope and healing in a Christian environment.

What We Do

Grace Lake provides therapeutic horsemanship to children 3 years old through adults with various disabilities (autism, sensory processing disorder, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, downs syndrome, etc.), as well as youth with obvious social problems and youth without obvious social problems. We also serve their family members who get much therapeutic value from horsemanship.

Our classes include a Certified PATH Intl. Therapeutic Riding Instructor and sometimes volunteers working with a rider or a group of up to 4 riders in an enclosed arena, open field or barn area for the purpose of
improving their daily life functioning. The rider may learn specific riding skills, care of the horse, or how to saddle a horse. The rider may play games on horseback, maneuver through an obstacle course, or challenge their skills with a trail ride. Each rider or family will have specific goals to work toward. Classes begin with prayer. Classes are 45 minutes one time per week and are grouped together in Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions.
