For nearly 10 years, Happy Tails TR has been serving the special needs community in the heart of Monmouth County's horse country, Colts Neck. We welcome students with a wide range of disabilities, and use our lessons to highlight their individual abilities.
New students participate in a New Student Assessment, where they are introduced to a horse for the first time, and at their own pace, adjust to the new sensory stimulation provided by the farm environment. This gives our instructors the opportunity to evaluate the student through a series of directed tasks, so they can develop appropriate goals to work towards during lessons. Students may participate in both mounted and unmounted activities.
All lessons are taught by PATH International certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors. To make safety a top priority, we rely heavily on volunteers to assist with lessons.
