Realizing the Dream
The History of Spirit

Spirit Therapies

Spirit Therapies volunteer staff has been helping children and adults with special needs in the Las Vegas area since 1995 through its therapeutic riding program. Since 2003, Spirit has been a successful independent program. Many local individuals with special needs have gained physical and mental benefits through our special blend of horseback riding and physical therapy. Our program is the only existing program in the Las Vegas area that allows individuals with special needs to enjoy and benefit from the special bond between horse and rider.
Therapeutic horseback riding is much more than just riding around an arena. It is a way to discover a whole new world of adventure, freedom, responsibility, dignity and excitement. More importantly, it provides an overwhelming sense of accomplishment for everyone involved—riders, volunteers, caregivers, parents, and instructors.

Spirit Therapies is accredited as a Premier Therapeutic Horseback Riding Center for individuals with special needs through Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl).

We would like to invite you to visit our center, meet the officers and volunteers, and even become involved as a volunteer, sponsor an individual with special needs or a horse, or to become a donor. We guarantee it will provide an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.
