Horse SenseAbility offers a variety of services that are particularly geared to youth and young adults who are on the autism spectrum, have experienced trauma or are from an underserved community.

--Stable Moments is designed for children who are or have been in foster care. A trained volunteer mentor and a horse meet 1-on-1 weekly with the child for an entire school year to develop life skills.

--City To Saddle gives underserved 6- to 13-year old children an opportunity to interact with a variety of animals, particularly horses, in a relaxing rural environment.

--Therapeutic riding and horsemanship lessons are available for children and adults with one or more of the following characteristics: autism spectrum disorder; learning disabilities; emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues; experience with violence, abuse or trauma; or identified as at risk.

--Wildstar Wranglers provides an opportunity for young adults with special challenges to develop a strong work ethic and learn appropriate job-related skills in a supportive, supervised environment. Tasks include daily horse care and barn chores.

--Equine-assisted therapy visits are offered to schools, afterschool programs and social service organizations in the local area by our founder and her registered therapy pony Hugo.
