Help Keep the Barn Doors Open!
Ready Set Ride holds an annual dinner and auction to help care for our horses during the winter months.
Since 2001, Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility has been assisting special needs and terminally ill children by providing horseback riding therapy.
Located in Plainfield Illinois, students as young as three years of age come from all over the Chicagoland area. It is the goal of Ready Set Ride to assist these children in achieving the highest quality of life possible through the use of horses and individualized activities focused on the needs of the student. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to participate in therapy sessions. Volunteers are also an integral part of the therapy sessions at Ready Set Ride.
Following Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) guidelines, Ready Set Ride bases its program on developmental techniques utilizing the horses as a means of mobility for the children. Certified therapeutic riding instructors guide the students and closely monitor individual needs to encourage consistent improvement. Therapy is conducted in the form of games on horseback which incorporate physical, speech, occupational, developmental and recreational therapy.
