There are many benefits to therapeutic riding; while teaching riding and horsemanship skills, life goals are achieved by the students. It is more than just a pony ride — our students learn leadership skills, decision-making, and experience improved communication & teamwork while sharpening their cognitive skills. At Renew, our certified professional staff considers the student’s life goals, and seeks to incorporate these goals into the riding lesson. Each lesson is specifically catered to various learning styles including the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. While learning to ride, the riders are challenged physically and experience improvements in balance, muscle coordination, endurance, and strength. Riding a horse is a holistic way to learn and to be challenged on many different levels. We celebrate our rider’s accomplishments each week as they develop and grow not just as riders, but as people.
Renew Educational Camp (REC)
NEW FOR FALL 2020…We are excited to offer a new program for the fall of 2020. Like many other things during the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming school year is going to look a lot different than in the past. We will be offering a unique 12 week Educational Camp for high school and middle school students on the week days when they will not be in school in person. The intent is to provide a place for kids enrolled in virtual school or homeschool programs to be during the day to help support the working parents of our community. There will be designated time for students to work on their school-assigned work. Students will be expected to work independently and adapt to a structured environment where they will have plenty of opportunities to remain physically active, socially engaged, and connected to the community during these unique days.
After School Educational Camp
NEW FOR FALL 2020…Renew Therapeutic Riding Center is offering an 11-week After School Educational Camp for students to interact with horses, make new friends, and experience a unique equine learning opportunity. Each 2-hour day at camp will include an hour for students to help around the farm as well as an hour of fun and educational activities involving horses. The intent of this camp is to provide an after school activity for students in grades 4-12. Students will be expected to adapt to a structured environment where they will have plenty of opportunities to remain physically active, socially engaged, and connected to the community during these unique days.
