HART (Horses Adaptive Riding and Therapy) was founded on the belief that special horses and special people working together could change lives.
OUR MISSION: To empower and strengthen those with physical, cognitive, emotional and social challenges through equine assisted activities.
OUR VISION: To positively change lives by harnessing the power of people and horses.
WHO WE SERVE: Our primary beneficiaries are those with physical, cognitive, emotional and social challenges. We are hopeful to broaden our definition to include other groups of individuals that can benefit from our services.
WHERE WE OPERATE: We are currently operating in Salem, Oregon at West Hills Stables, an interim facility, as we build our own arena at a recently purchased property. We are creating a network of partners throughout the Willamette Valley to bring healing to our communities.
Horses Adaptive Riding & Therapy (HART) provides adaptive and recreational riding to individuals with special needs. Based in Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley, we focus on creating a supportive, inclusive and compassionate environment for our clients, staff (two-legged and four-legged) and volunteers.
