Challenge Unlimited, Inc. uses horses, riding, and the environment of the working farm as educational and therapeutic tools to help people with a variety of abilities. Clients are placed with licensed horseback riding instructors to work on goals that encourage self-confidence and contribute to improved physical condition. Riding horses makes therapy an experience that is both challenging and fun.
The therapeutic benefits of horseback riding can continue to assist children who no longer qualify for Early Intervention Services while enrolled in our Ironstone Therapy Program (starting at age 3).
