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.

Each year, Kathy requests that if her friends and family wish to do something for her in honor of her birthday, that they support her in our Ride-A-Thon.

She was a member of our original silver saddles program which started in 2008 and at the spry age of 82, she's still going strong.

What People Are Saying

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.
