     Riding  Center
Our Mission: "Enhance the lives of those with disabilities and their families through structured equine interactions " 

We are Proud to be partners with  " Montrose Community Foundation", our fiscal sponsors.

What we are:  Montrose Therapeutic Riding Center is a Non-Profit Organization, a 501c3 through MCF. A horse and riding program located in beautiful Bostwick Park, Colorado,  just below the Black Canyon of The Gunnison National Park. The Black Canyon Ranches arena looks over the San Juan Mountain range, creating a  rejuvenating atmosphere for those who visit.

  Who we are:  We are group of highly skilled and passionate professionals, who have joined together with the purpose of nurturing the minds and bodies of children and adults with disabilities through structured interactions with equine companions. Our trainers have expertise in working with children, youth, and adults with a variety of conditions.  Our licensed occupational therapist incorporates hippotherapy into a range of treatment strategies to achieve positive functional outcomes for our clients
What is Equine Therapy :                                                                               
 Hippotherapy, derived from the Greek word Hippos
(meaning "horse"), refers to treatment that is delivered with the aid of a horse.  In this treatment strategy, a licensed physical, occupational or speech-language  therapist uses the characteristic movement of the horse to provide specific and graded motor input.  These planned experiences on a moving horse build a foundation to improve neurological function and sensory processing, which can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities.                                                                                                  
The therapist utilizes the rhythm, regularity and variability of the horse's movement as part of an  integrated treatment plan to support goal development with individuals with a variety of challenges. 
As with all treatment strategies and tools, results  may 
       vary over time and from one individual to another.
