Adaptive Riding and Unmounted Horsemanship
Pal-O-Mine Equestrian provides quality adaptive riding and unmounted lesson programs that benefit individuals with cognitive, physical, emotional, and mental disabilities. Our students range in age from 5 to 70 years old. Each one of our riding instructors excels in their field and continues with training and certification throughout their careers.
The goals for each lesson are tailored to make improvements in the most needed areas of the student’s life. Adaptive riding and unmounted lessons are exceptional for improving fine and gross motor skills, balance, coordination, sensorimotor skills, language, and social skills.
If you are interested in becoming a participant in our lesson program:
The application process begins with the application packet paperwork. Please read, complete, and sign all pages of the application packet. Please note that the Medical History and Physician Statement MUST be signed, dated, and stamped by your medical provider.
Once we receive and review the completed forms, we will contact you to set up an evaluation meeting. Every new participant and his/her family meets with our CEO and Founder, Lisa Gatti, for a one-hour evaluation to discuss historical information and goals. There is a one-time fee of $100 for the evaluation, due prior to booking. With the recommendation of the CEO, lessons can then be scheduled for the appropriate program.
