UPDATE - 11/17/21
We are thrilled to be operating out of our new home located at 3363 Wheeler Drive Acworth, GA 30102. Our program is still operating on a waitlist, but we are now scheduling one-time trial lessons for those that are interested in joining our program.

At Hand, Hoof and Heart, our mission is to support people of all abilities towards maximizing mental, physical, emotional and educational growth through the use of animal and nature based programs.
Our Therapeutic Riding program is intended to support the improvement of the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional goals of riders with disabilities. Lessons are taught by PATH certified riding instructors with extensive experience working with the special needs community and horses. We develop our lesson plans to meet each student's unique needs by including games and exercises while also teaching the sport of horseback riding. This program is suitable for students as young as 3 and our instructors have experience working with a wide range of diagnoses.
Not your run of the mill lesson program! We set ourselves apart from the rest by not putting an emphasis on competition and focus more on building a strong sense of horsemanship in our riders from the ground and in the saddle. This program is designed to encourage our students to create their own goals within the barn and develop a sense of self-awareness, independence and responsibility. Our horsemanship program is geared towards students that not only have an interest in riding, but also an interest in equine care, behavior and training.
Our unmounted program offers in-depth and hands-on equine lesson plans from the ground. This program is geared towards students that have an interest in horse ownership, equine communication, behavior and training, barn management, equine facilitated learning, or those that may want to pursue a career in the equine industry.
We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit. All donations to our program are tax-deductible.
SPONSOR A HORSE
Sponsorships allow us to be able to provide top-quality care for our program horses. We have sponsorship packages available that provide a week, two weeks, or a month's worth of care for our equine partners.
If you would like to contribute to our program in a different way, our program is always in need of supplies on the farm including feed, hay, first aid, grooming, supplements, and more. Please contact us directly for more information.
