Opened in 1970 as the first therapeutic riding center built especially for the purpose of serving those with special needs in the North America, the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center strives to focus on what individuals can accomplish, not on what they cannot.
Today, the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center serves riders of all ages who have physical, emotional or cognitive disabilities.
To enhance the lives of individuals who have special needs through equine assisted activities and therapies while leading the industry in education.
Why We Do What We Do:
The market for integrative therapies has been consistently increasing in the United States over the past 10 years. This trend is supported by out of control healthcare costs, rising rates of preventable health problems, and changing national healthcare policies. Doctors, hospitals, and patients are finding that utilizing an integrative healing approach produces tangible benefits ranging from preventative care to improved therapy outcomes, to savings on the bottom line. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, nearly 40% of U.S. adults are currently using at least once type of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Our Clients Include:

Testimonial Tuesday: Meet Natalie
Everyone who comes to Cheff has a unique experience that oftentimes has far reaching effects. Today, we'd like to highlight Natalie.

Since 2005, volunteer extraordinaire Kathy Keelan Pew, has donated her birthday to the Cheff (Ride-a-Thon) - to the tune of nearly $15,000 ($2,475 in 2016 alone!)
We're fairly new to the Center - Adam's only been to camp and one session, but when he rides, he has a great time. We're hoping it will bring him more self-confidence and independence.
