Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the well-being of individuals in our community through the physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits of therapeutic horsemanship. At Renew, each rider has the opportunity to go beyond their disability, inability, fear, or reality. We encourage and support dreams by offering therapeutic horsemanship activities to fulfill our mission, striving to help riders develop their maximum potential in a caring and fun environment that empowers the rider in ways different from traditional therapy.

Renew Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is focused on improving the lives of all its riders. We are a Premier Accredited Center with PATH International, the only accredited therapeutic riding center in West Michigan.

Every donation makes a difference. By contributing to Renew, you are directly impacting the lives of our riders, our horses, and our volunteers. Renew riders often experience higher levels of self esteem, improved ability and focus, enhanced emotional regulation, sharpened communication skills, increased physical strength, and improved balance. By supporting Renew, you are supporting our community.

What’s Happening at Renew

New Blog Post

We have a special treat for you with this month’s blog! One of our students, Nancy, wrote a short piece sharing her journey with horses and the therapeutic impact that they have had on her life.  Read more here.

Garden Volunteers Needed

We’d love your help in fulfilling the dream of creating a beautiful garden that our Renew friends and family can enjoy for years to come.

Join us Friday, April 30th, or Saturday, May 1st, in the garden area (east side of the large arena) anytime from 9am through the late afternoon while we work together to plant hundreds of donated perennials (thanks to Walters Gardens, Inc)!  No experience required as Mary Faber will be coordinating the project.

Please RSVP to Jael at volunteer@renewtrc.org if you’re available for one or both of these dates – the more the merrier!

What to bring: Mask, gloves, water, snack, and any garden tools you might like to use (some will be available).
