“Horses helping people.” It’s been Hoofbeat’s guiding principle since our founding in 1993. We offer accredited therapeutic horseback riding services to adults and children in Rockbridge, Virginia and neighboring communities. Hoofbeats serves people with mental, physical, or emotional disabilities, trauma, or chronic diseases and a limited number of able-bodied riders. Find us on the grounds of the Virginia Horse Center, where our staff, volunteers and horses serve more than 100 riders every year. Our facility offers a mounting ramp, arena, indoor classroom space, and wooded sensory trail.
