OUR MINISTRY is a God-Centered Therapeutic Riding program. Our goal is to facilitate the development of wholeness into the lives of the people that we serve. We believe that wholeness begins by knowing and following Jesus Christ.
We strive to provide an atmosphere of people with heart’s purified by God through which He can work to bring hope and healing to those in need. We trust in God to lead us down the path that each individual needs to reach their full potential. Only God understands each person’s needs and how to meet them.
OUR RIDERS include anyone in need of hope and healing. This includes children and adults, people with disabilities and people without disabilities, youth with obvious social problems, and youth without obvious social problems.
OUR CLASSES include an instructor and sometimes volunteers working with a rider or group of 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 has specific goals to work toward. Class begins with prayer. Classes are 45 minutes one time per week and are grouped together in Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions.
OUR PROGRAM was founded in 2004 and adheres to the high safety standards of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Riding International (PATH Intl.) and is a PATH Intl. Center Member. Grace Lake is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization made possible through people and organizations willing to give tax deductible donations.
