Feel The Spirit

PIRIT is the place that 4-year-old Merrily's physical therapist sent her to develop trunk strength because her delayed mobility made it impossible for her to walk. She started riding in the spring, and by summer, surprised her parents by taking her first steps as they prepared to leave on summer vacation.

PIRIT has provided a fun atmosphere for Brett (age 4). "He loves to put his boots on and ride, "Cowboy". I have been amazed at the progress of his trunk rotation and overall mobility in his legs and shoulders. He has been going to physical and occupational therapy all his life, yet we have finally found one that works wonders and one that Brett loves!" ~ Jennifer
Spirit is the place where riders with Down's Syndrome, MS, Muscular Dystrophy, Angelman's Syndrome, spinal cord injuries, emotional distress, and other disabilities experience the expansion of their worlds through the magic of connecting with horses.

Spirit is the place where we give back to the men and women who have served our country, both active duty military personnel and veterans, who have been diagnosed with physical and/or mental challenges.

Our horses are really four legged therapists, who help our riders improve their lives through physical contact, exercise, and interaction with others which increases communication and social skills. As our rider's skills increase, so does their self-esteem and general well being. Research has proven that exercise and interpersonal interaction produces profound benefits for disabled individuals working to reach their full physical, mental, and social potential. Spirit is dedicated to helping our riders discover their dreams & goals to help them expand their physical and mental horizons so they can be the best that they can be.

Spirit Therapies is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Someday through support of our friends, riders, volunteers, sponsors and the public, we will be able to offer our services free of charge through our Pegasus Program.
