Learn More About Forward Stride at Our Giddyup Gala
An Event Open to All
Founded in 2003, Forward Stride is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives through equine-assisted activities and therapies. Our Continuum of Care allows for children and adults of all abilities and backgrounds to develop horsemanship skills, fitness, empathy, and self-confidence, while also having the option to participate in one of our therapeutic and clinical programs. Forward Stride is the largest therapeutic center of its kind in Oregon, and one of only three nationally accredited centers in the state. Our innovative programming enables individuals to blossom and work toward independence, whether they are a child affected by autism; a teenager with a severe brain injury; a veteran returning from war facing PTSD; or someone living with a condition or disease that diminishes their confidence or mobility.
