HHPD Ranch is in danger of losing their facility. They need to raise $450,000 by May 15th - If they don't hit their goal all proceeds will be used to move to a new facility.
HHPD Ranch is Currently the only 100% free Therapeutic Horse back riding facility in Colorado. They do not charge the kids anything to ride (not even an application fee like most places) Nor do not require them to have a sponsor.
The mission of this ranch is to provide FREE Therapeutic Horse back riding to children with disabilities. Therapeutic Horse back riding is beneficial and extremely effective for individuals with physical, emotional, behavioral and learning disabilities.
Horses Are Incredible Animals
They seem to sense when people have special needs and they try their best to adapt to meet those needs. These gentle giants are unbelievably understanding, compassionate and completely non-judgmental. Unless one is deliberately brutal, they continually excuse us for our mistakes. Horses truly give their hearts and souls for the people that love them. It is no wonder then that horses make such wonderful "therapists."
The horse's movements are smooth, and for those who are not able to walk on their own, the riding experience can help to exercise muscles that are used in walking and for balance. For individuals with cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, the smooth motion of the horse can help to improve balance, overall gross motor function, as well as trunk, pelvic and hip motion. In fact, miracles occasionally occur!
