CKRH provides an outstanding program that stresses its motto of “Ability not Disability.” The program gives people with disabilities something they CAN DO in a world that may tell them all that they cannot do. Students are encouraged by their team of volunteers to do all they are capable of doing.

As the father of a young man says, “The amazing thing is, when Kevin is on a horse about fifty percent of his disabilities go away. When he sits up on that horse, he becomes a different person.”

Using this unique bond between horse and human in a very special way, Central Kentucky Riding for the Handicapped, located at the Kentucky Horse Park, provides therapeutic horseback riding, driving and related activities. The students, their parents and their therapists, all enthusiastically attest to the healing power of the horse in all aspects of their lives--physical, mental and emotional.
