Therapeutic Riding Program

Our therapeutic riding program operates in the evenings and on Saturday mornings. This program focuses on achieving goals that are specific to each rider, helping to develop social skills, confidence and riding skills.

Step 1:

We charge $50 per lesson, but these can often be covered with the help of a provider like B&B Care Services or Easter Seals.

Equine-Facilitated Learning (EFL) Program

Our Equine-Facilitated Learning (EFL) Program serves six schools in Effingham County. Each class comes to the center with a teacher to participate in an eight-week curriculum. Students enjoy educational activities inside our classroom with a retired school teacher, while other students ride under our covered arena.

Students are assessed at the first and the final weeks of their sessions.  We have seen significant improvements in vocabulary, posture and core strength in these riders. Most of the riders we serve are unable to participate in traditional sports, but this is an activity that each one of them can enjoy, regardless of their ability level.

Special Olympics Georgia

At Faith Equestrian, we believe that competition helps our riders to grow in maturity, teaches them valuable skills about good sportsmanship and confidence in their abilities and most importantly is a lot of fun! We have the opportunity to take a handful of our riders to two horse shows a year. In the past, we have hosted the Spring Invitational in May, which is a local show and is attended by a larger group of our riders.

In October, we take a smaller group of riders to the Special Olympics in Gainesville where they compete against other riders around the state for medals. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the riders and their families at no charge to them! For our riders, this is a very special opportunity that gives them a chance to excel and progress in something they love!
