Ride with Pride has such sweet and patient horses, it makes the whole experience so much more enjoyable!! The staff and volunteers are so nice and helpful and you can tell they really genuinely care. I couldn’t recommend any service you could do more than this and we have tried a lot of them! Equine Therapy with Ride with Pride has made a tremendous difference in our girls and in our family as a whole. They truly make learning and riding horses so fun. We are so blessed to be a part of the Ride with Pride family!!
