Our classes are comprised of students with a wide range of mental and physical challenges. We provide services to the Coweta County School System Special Education classes and any other individuals that qualify. CORRAL offers both riding and pony & cart driving instruction.
Lessons are taught by a PATH, Intl. certified riding instructor with a team of 1-3 volunteers per rider. We have classes on Mondays, Thursdays, and every other Saturday. Riders are in group classes of no more than 3 riders, and classes are approximately 30 minutes long. Riders participate in tasks and games that encourage physical strengthening and cognitive improvement while learning basic riding skills. The emphasis is on developing riding skills in a safe environment that is both therapeutic and fun. Specific goals are set for each rider at the beginning of a session based upon input from the rider’s parents or teachers.
In order to begin participating in our program, you must complete the rider application below and return the originals to CORRAL. Once we have received your paperwork, we will contact you to set up a New Rider Evaluation. The evaluation is a very important part of our program, allowing us to determine rider skill level, abilities, best horse, volunteer needs and the most suitable time slots on our schedule. It is only after we complete an evaluation that we can determine if there is a place on the schedule for the rider.
