Programs

NWTRC provides horsemanship and riding lessons to people of all ages and abilities. Each individual's goals are targeted in group and private lessons taught by PATH Intl. certified instructors.

Horsemanship Program

NWTRC offers three seven week sessions a year during the spring, summer and fall.

Each participant signs up for one group lesson a week for a seven week course. Groups consist of two to four participants.

During these sessions participants enjoy interacting with their horse, other participants, and specially trained staff members and volunteers, all while gaining multiple physical, emotional and social benefits, and learning horsemanship skills.

NWTRC also offers limited private lessons during the late fall and winter months.

Lesson Information:

  • Session fees are due the first week of each session.
  • Cancellation policy is strictly adhered to.
  • Riders must have submitted a completed registration packet.
  • Riders with Down Syndrome must have AtlantoDens Interval X-rays.
  • Everyone must sign a liability release to be on the premises.
