Thank you for inquiring about Therapeutic Riding Center South Jersey. We are a horseback riding and driving program that is working out of the Gloucester County DREAM Park. We depend on the generosity and support of those who believe in our mission and the benefits that therapeutic riding can produce for our riders. We are a PATH Int. Center Member.
Therapeutic riding is a powerful recreational activity because the rhythmic movement of the horse can help calm and organize the brain, making learning new skills possible. In addition, riding a horse moves the body in a manner similar to the human gait, which allows for improvement in balance, coordination and muscle strength. It is also a gentle way of exercising the body and providing sensory input the brain needs to re-organize and de-stress.
Horseback riding is also a great activity because of the many opportunities for interactions and socialization. We also find that there can be a marked improvement in the riders self esteem, confidence and personal awareness that can transfer to other areas of the rider’s life. We love working with our horses to enhance the lives of our students by creating this opportunity for growth.
Our highly skilled head instructor is certified though PATH, International. To maintain our certification, we are required to possess current CPR and First Aid training, and keep up our continuing education.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family, give you a tour of the facility and introduce you to our horses.
