Therapeutic RidingProgram

Lessons are available for siblings who are typically developing,  in the English disciplines of dressage and jumping; intro to Natural Horsemanship classes for our therapeutic riding students and their siblings, as well as family riding classes and trails, and birthday parties. Families who have a child enrolled in our therapeutic riding program, our adaptive swim program, or riders that have a sibling with special needs, qualify for reduced lesson rates.

Facility
Our facility is equipped with an indoor arena with heated viewing area, a full sized competition outdoor arena, and a robust para-horse development program for our equines. 

Our Sure Hands automated lift allows our riders with paralysis, weakened joints or other physical challenges to mount and dismount our horses and ponies with maximum comfort and safety.

Instructors
Our instructors and support staff are highly qualified with certifications through PATH, United States Pony Club (USPC), United States Dressage Federation (USDF), United States Eventing Association (USEA), and/or Parelli Natural Horsemanship (PNH) and extensive experience in therapeutic riding, the English disciplines, and special education.   
Horses & Ponies
ALL horses and ponies are trained according to the principals of Parelli Natural Horsemanship, and ALL lesson horses and ponies are trained to AT LEAST a level 3 Online and Freestyle.

ALL horses and ponies are trained to AT LEAST Training Level in dressage, and most are schooling First Level. Several of our performance horses are schooling at or above 2nd Level dressage. This gives our students the very best opportunity to achieve excellence, either in their independent riding skills, or, benefitting from the exceptionally correct movement of our horses during their hippotherapy and therapeutic riding sessions.

ALL of the our horses and ponies are safe for beginners, most can be ridden by advanced riders.

ALL are trail and cross country trained and schooled.

ALL horses and ponies are fitted with CUSTOM saddles by Antares Custom Saddlery, or Devoucoux Saddlery -- each piece handmade in France. Wheatland Farm is proudly sponsored by Antares Saddlery, one of the world's finest professional saddle makers.
