Cheff Center: Augusta MI



Potential Students and Parents


For almost 40 years, the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center has been providing programs and services to hundreds of clients annually. Our mission is to improve the emotional and physical health of individuals through the therapeutic use of horses, and to serve as an international training ground and education center for therapeutic riding techniques and instruction.

As a nonprofit organization, the Cheff Center relies on financial and in-kind contributions to support our programs. Our students require financial support to participate in our program. Although we ask a fee, it doesn't cover our costs.

What People Are Saying

The Cheff Center is the greatest place for therapy. I volunteered there. It gave me so much joy to see the smiles on the riders faces. It was best thing I have ever done.
