Leg Up Equestrian Center, Inc

Developing character and confidence through horsemanship....one child at a time

Girl laying on neckLeg Up Equestrian Center was founded in 2007 to provide a fun, confidence building, and rewarding safe haven for foster children.

Gentle horses and ponies offer unconditional love and companionship for the children as they build their riding and handling skills under the guidance of caring instructors. Those with emotional and social difficulties find their relationship with the horses can lead to increased confidence, self-esteem, and patience. Eventually these students will become program mentors and volunteers, guiding and teaching others the skills they have learned.
