There are five program sessions in the Manes & Motions riding season: early spring, spring, summer, fall and winter. Participants ages four and older living with a disability are welcome to apply to the program. Prospective participants who are interested in the program must first complete the required application forms. Please note, the Medical History Form MUST be signed by a physician; faxed forms are not accepted. Once all forms are completed and returned, an evaluation will be scheduled to assess the participants eligibility. The evaluation process provides an opportunity to assess whether program activities are safe and appropriate for the individual and helps determine class placement, horse selection and proper equipment needed for new participants. Once accepted into the program, individual goals are established for the participant and progress is documented each week.

The Manes & Motions staff is available to answer any of your questions throughout the application and enrollment process. Please feel free to call Manes & Motions at 860.685.0008 or email us at
