Stable Strides Farm - Therapeutic Riding

Stable Strides Farm, a nonprofit organization, was established in 2001 giving riders with disabilities a place to learn to become effective and competitive horse people. In January of 2008 we moved to Bridlewood Stables in Flower Mound, Texas. Our riders continue to be successful in the show arena. Our lesson horses are retired show horses that have experience in all classes. We now have 8 horses in the program with an average age of 13 years. They are all registered and have earned points in their respective breed associations. Six of the eight horses have competed and placed in the top 5 at the world show level.

Stable Strides has won several awards under the direction of Amanda Cleveland, including The Top Club awards from Chisholm Challenge and Top Hands. Our riders have won several world titles in PHBA and
ABRA as well as 5 AQHA High Points for the Nation in AQHA EWD including the first ever Showmanship, WTC English Equitation and WJL Western Horsemanship.

Riders at Stable Strides experience so many benefits from their time in the arena. Not only do they get a since of pride from their accomplishments with the horse, but they also receive physical and cognitive benefits. Our riders develop skills that give them bragging rights to their able-bodied peers.

We have heard riders speak their first words and seen them become strong enough to take their first steps. Riders
may be working on 3 step directions at school but be able to follow 10 step directions with the horse.

We thank all of our donors, volunteers and parents for helping our students to get where they are in their riding careers. Truly they have made a difference allowing our students to compete successfully on a level playing field with all their peers.
