The Joy Of


As we navigate current community health conditions, we will continue to be directed by facts and figures provided by the CDC and County officials. Therapeutic riding poses a mix of positive and negative risk factors: horseback riding is naturally socially distant  but we continue to adhere to local health requirements with sincere diligence and care. Please review our COVID-19 Statement here & Please don't hesitate to contact Stable Hands with any questions or concerns. The following updates have been implemented to the rules regarding mask wearing.  On June 17, 2021 Cal/OSHA aligned workplace mask requirements with the CA Department of Health. It states

“ No face covering requirements outdoors (except during outbreaks) regardless of vaccination status”




Stable Hands is a PATH Premier accredited program with a mission. Our mission is to provide Therapeutic Horsemanship to children and adults living with disabilities in Siskiyou County. 

Our program consists of two 8-week sessions in the Spring and Fall, and one 4-week session in the Summer. Our Horses Helping Heroes program, for veterans, consists of three 8 week sessions. We serve 40 — 60 individuals in small group lessons. We annually train 40 - 50 volunteers who are the backbone of our organization. These dedicated community members serve at least 1/2 day per week fulfilling numerous roles. We raise money to support the majority of our program costs through the generosity of individuals, businesses, service groups and foundations.
