UPDATE - 10/3/21
WE ARE MOVING
Our program will be moving to our new, forever home on Saturday, October 9th. Our new location features 14.5 acres of rolling pastures, a newly renovated 8 stall barn, hot and cold indoor wash stall, large tack room, and a soon-to-be newly renovated 140 X 80 arena with lights. Our new address is 3363 Wheeler Drive Acworth, GA 30102.
Our program is still operating on a waitlist as we focus on this new journey. Moving to the new farm will allow us to accommodate our waitlist riders and provide more farm-based activities for the community. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your support! We can't wait to share our new home with you all.
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 designed to support the improvement of physical, cognitive, social and emotional goals of riders with disabilities. Our 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 while also teaching the sport of horseback riding. Our students are also able to participate in our summer camps and horse shows.
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. We offer instructors with the ability to teach complete beginners to advanced levels of riding. Our lesson 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.
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.
