Saddle Pals

A Horsemanship Program

UCP Saddle Pals provides weekly adapted horsemanship lessons to people, age 4 and up. The program, run by a remarkable team, promotes growth, independence and improved quality of life for our clients with developmental disabilities. As a result of learning to ride a horse, clients can improve coordination, balance and posture.  Likewise, it helps students  develop better self-awareness and self-esteem.

Nationally accredited by PATH International, UCP Saddle Pals promotes growth, independence and improved quality of life for riders with developmental disabilities, helping them:

  • Develop a bond with UCP’s therapy horses
  • Learn responsibilities associated with riding a horse and animal care
  • Expand their knowledge and skills in a fun, supportive environment
