Therapeutic Riding & Lessons

Education, Therapy, and a Unique Experience

Trotting Horse Therapeutic Riding is dedicated to providing equine facilitated therapy and accessible outdoor recreation to Montanans in need.  We offer both mounted and unmounted equine activities, as well as beginner riding lessons based in practical horsemanship. Due to the age and size of our horses, we have a 220 lb weight limit for mounted activities.

Each lesson is one-on-one, with all focus on the client by the Lesson Leader and the client’s Volunteer Team (horse leaders, side walkers, etc). While multiple lessons may be taking place in the same arena, each individual is given undivided attention by their team. We do offer small group (2-3 people) lessons on occasion, depending on horse and staff availability.


Emphasis on all parts of horsemanship are included in each participant’s lesson; from grooming and saddling, to leading and riding, depending on the client’s abilities. Horse care is an important part of what we do!

Are you a professional Physical, Occupational, or Mental Health Therapist? We’d love to work with you with a client in need! Please reach out to us today.



Medicaid covers therapeutic riding in Montana under Community & Home Based Services. Clients are required to be enrolled in a participating Medicaid Waiver program, and have a caseworker with the ability to provide a Prior Authorization Referral for services.
