Therapeutic Riding: A traditional riding lesson in English or Western style riding that addresses goals and objectives developed in partnership with each individual participant's support team. Not only are our riders learning safe horsemanship skills, they are also developing social skills, communication skills, confidence and self esteem, overall physical fitness, balance and coordination and agility.

Therapeutic Driving:  New in 2017, therapeutic driving is an alternative to riding for people who are not physically able to sit astride, afraid of riding or exceed our horses' weight limits. Driving focuses on core and upper body strength, spatial awareness and cognitive learning. 

Equine Assisted Learning: An un-mounted or mounted group activity that targets meeting challenges appropriately, communication and social skills, teamwork and relationship skills. Most effective as a group activity, but can be done individually as well. 

Veteran's Equine Therapy Services: Providing therapeutic riding, therapeutic driving, equine assisted learning and equine facilitated psychotherapy opportunities for US military veterans. Group and/or individual sessions.  

Volunteer Opportunities: From equine care to painting fences, assisting with sessions or providing office support, we offer volunteer opportunities to community members ages 16 and up. Anyone interested in volunteering should call 307-673-6161 or email info@chapswyo.org for more information.
