MISSION STATEMENT

Saddle Up’s mission is to impact the lives of children and young adults with disabilities by providing opportunities to grow and develop through therapeutic, educational and recreational experiences with horses. We bring that mission to life by providing a year-round program on our 34-acre farm near Franklin, TN.

CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS

To ensure the safety of its participants and a quality learning opportunity, Saddle Up! requires all of its Instructors to be certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) In addition, we provide special training for our dedicated group of volunteers who come from all walks of life, age brackets and locations in the area to serve in the program.

Programs

We love what we do!

Saddle Up! is a PATH International Premier Accredited Center which provides high quality programs in the field of equine-assisted services and therapies. Based on your child’s needs and interests, we can provide Adaptive Riding, Therapy Services, Adaptive Horsemanship, Fun on the Farm, Equestrian Club, Interactive Vaulting, From the Ground Up and/or Alumni Transitions. To find out more information about our programs and how to get your child involved, please review the information below.

Why the horse?

Nothing can compare to the power of the horse. The auto industry has put “horsepower” into their engines for decades, but there is a “horse power” beyond strength and speed that only a real horse can provide. Saddle Up! partners with their herd to offer children and youth with disabilities a unique environment to grow and develop. Our horses provide movement, support, learning opportunities, strength, stability, companionship, and much more to participants in all of our different programs. To see the horses in action and the amazing power they have to offer, feel free to schedule a visit for you and your family.
