Blue Sky Therapeutic Riding and Respite was founded in 2010 by a group of people devoted to developing a comprehensive program to help those living with disabilities. This includes individuals with autism, physical, cognitive or emotional disabilities, and also their siblings, parents and caretakers. Blue Sky’s therapeutic riding center has helped many special needs individuals gain confidence and improve motor skills, cognitive ability and gain valuable life skills. Blue Sky offers the opportunity for riders of all abilities, including siblings of special needs individuals, to ride and compete in special events. We are creating an environment to teach life skills, offer the ability to participate in events such as Special Olympics, offer referrals to community resources and assist and offer support and respite to all members of a family with special needs children.
Blue Sky is dedicated to setting a new standard in service for our special needs community.
To provide a safe, happy and healthy therapeutic community that works to empower and propel our special needs citizens and their families to their fullest potential. We serve our valued clients by providing therapeutic horseback riding and respite, vocational and entrepreneurial opportunities.
To grow our therapeutic horsemanship program not only in number of instructors, but also in our level of certification and quality of facilities which will allow us to serve a larger portion of our special needs community and our current riders at the highest level.
By providing our citizens and their families hope and security for their future, it will allow them the opportunity to flourish and find their voice they so dearly deserve.
We will establish and develop superior housing and entrepreneurial opportunities in a structured environment…each component allowing the other to thrive and succeed.
