Narrative

The Bridge Center offers year round therapeutic horseback riding lessons to children and adults of all abilities. Therapeutic horseback riding provides physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional benefits to participants. Participants are taught traditional riding skills using adaptive equipment and teaching methods, specially trained horses, and the support of up to three volunteers, in lessons tailored to the unique needs of each participant.


Lessons are offered Monday thru Saturday, in either a group or private setting. All lessons are taught by PATH International licensed and Massachusetts licensed riding instructors
