John Chitwood, Stars and Strides Therapeutic Riding Center, shares  the great work this group is doing.

What is Stars and Strides?

Stars & Strides Stables, believes in the remarkable therapeutic power of the equestrian experience.  Stars & Strides Stables is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established in 2012 to give riders with disabilities a place to learn and become effective and competitive equestrians.  Stars & Strides is a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) certified facility located in Weatherford, TX.

For children and adults with disabilities, working with horses like ours can be a life changing experience.  In fact, we believe no other therapeutic recreational opportunity offers so many benefits in such a holistic way.  Students will be taught equine care, riding, handling, and management to their best level of ability.
