SaddleUp! Foundation is dedicated to empowering individuals with special needs through equine assisted activities and therapies provided at a family-friendly ranch.
SaddleUp! Foundation brings this mission to life by upholding the highest level of equine facilitated activities and therapies. This all takes place in a safe, unique, family oriented and fun-filled environment for animal-human synergy to occur. Additionally, the efforts of collaborative relationships, organizations, partners, instructors, therapists, volunteers and the community look to enhance and expand on its programs and increase knowledge of the industry. Once on horseback, participants are able to "take life by the reins"!
SaddleUp! Foundation is unique for many reasons, but one we are very proud of is that the out of pocket expense for physical, occupational and speech therapy to our families is minimal. The difference between other facilities and SaddleUp! Foundation is that SaddleUp! Foundation covers many of the costs involved with providing the therapies, except for a fee to cover part of the cost for the therapist, which may be reimbursed by insurance, or other such groups that cover these therapies. Please ask our office staff for a list of organizations that have contributed in the past. Our environment is also unique. We have a facility that can accommodate the entire family with a comforable viewing lounge and outdoor playground. Our staff and volunteers interact closely with participants with special needs as well as their siblings and parents.
