What is Horse Powered Learning?

How do I donate my horse or my equipment?
Please contact us for more information and a member of our horse care staff will reach out. While it might seem like an easy job for an older horse, therapeutic services can be quite demanding physically and emotionally. Good candidates are of sturdy build, sound at walk, trot, and preferably canter, with a quiet, sensible temperament. LTR requires a 30-60 trial period to assess a prospective herd member’s suitability.
Can I volunteer my time (or my group's time) to help?
Yes! Please contact us or complete a Volunteer Application on our website under ‘Get Involved’.
Do you take insurance?
While adaptive/therapeutic riding is not covered by insurance, physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy may be covered depending on your insurance provider.
