Bridge Riding for the Disabled is a twenty six year old program located in southwestern Ohio, serving over 50 riders a year. Dedicated to helping disabled people, both children and adults, find new freedom through their experiences with horses. We serve many individuals with a variety of diagnosis ranging from those with cerebral palsy, autism, mental retardation, strokes and multiple sclerosis. Everyday, these riders find the courage to face challenges. The horses and our volunteers work through issues with balance, tight muscles, communication skills and improving overall independence.
