Our History


Founded in 2003, Forward Stride is dedicated to improving lives through equine-assisted activities and therapies.

Our inclusive Riding Program helps children and adults of all abilities develop horsemanship skills, fitness, and self-confidence.

Our Therapy Program offers people of all ages sessions with licensed physical, speech, and occupational therapists who specialize in using equine movement as a treatment tool in integrated treatment plans.

Our Veterans Program offers military veterans opportunities to participate in therapeutic riding and other activities at the barn.

Our Volunteer Program provides many ways to support Forward Stride, learn a lot, and be part of our community through helping with horse care, in therapy sessions, with facility projects, and more.
