Our Manes & Motions Therapeutic Riding Center remains committed to the safety and well-being of our participants, volunteers and staff.  We will implement a multi-phased strategy to safely and gradually reintroduce services beginning on June 1, 2020.   Our plans comply with all Hospital for Special Care (HFSC) policies and State of Connecticut guidelines for businesses providing outdoor recreational activities. Staff and volunteers have already begun preparation of our horses and facility for the return to service:


Phase Planned Start (subject to change) Activity

  • Limited number of participants
  • More independent participants
  • Minimal volunteer and staff contact required


Phase II July 2020

Phase III

  • Continue serving participants that require limited volunteer support


Services are subject to change at any time should community conditions, hospital or state policies warrant.  Additional information is available at 860-685-0008.


Manes & Motions

Riding a horse gives you freedom and empowerment through movement. A horse can be a powerful motivator in reviewing or reinforcing many behavioral, physical, mental, social and emotional goals. Our PATH Intl. instructors and volunteers work with those ages four and above with varying degrees of cognitive, physical, behavioral, psychological and sensory disabilities. Services are available to participants with special needs including, but not limited to: autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, stroke or traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and others. We strive to help you or your loved one reach your individual goals through the bond between you and your horse.
