Reno Rescue offers horseback riding lessons for individuals of
including individuals with disabilities and/or who are in need of therapeutic riding
(also known as “adaptive riding”).
We are a PATH International Accredited Center and volunteers who wish to be.
Reno Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit that provides both mounted and non-mounted experiential therapeutic riding instruction to disadvantaged youth, the physically disabled, veterans and seniors. Much like many of these students, the horses used in the program have hardened pasts, unusual stories and special needs. We exist because we believe that horses can heal physical and emotional needs in ways that are unique.
"I met Gigi at Reno Rescue when I first started riding again after 30 years. She was a beautiful but timid Thoroughbred who had suffered severe trauma and abuse. She was shy at first but after the first ride, we fell in love with each other. We had a wonderful summer together. She helped me to discover the joy of riding again with a precious partner. In turn, I helped her to trust and love someone after going through a terrible situation. While I wish our paths had crossed earlier in life, we made the most of the time we had together."
— She is greatly missed
Being a volunteer at Reno Rescue over the last 2 years has been such a tremendous blessing in my life. I have always had a love and admiration for horses as well as a penchant for working with children, and Reno Rescue has brought those two passions of mine together. Being able to come out to the ranch to spend time with the horses and the children learning about them has truly brought an additional layer of purpose and joy to my life. I feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful place filled with such amazing people. Cara is truly an inspiration to us as all as she pours love, grace, mercy, and passion into all that she does for these horses and the people that love them.
