The Kearney Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program (KTHRP) is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering emotional, physical and social well-being through horseback riding.

Therapeutic horseback riding has long been recognized as an effective treatment for a wide variety of physical and mental conditions. Research shows that almost all who participate in therapeutic riding experience physical, emotional and mental rewards. The Kearney Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program is designed to meet the needs of individuals of all ages and disabilities in our community.

Since 2010, the Kearney Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program has served the local community as an independent, service organization. The program operates during the warm weather months and serves a wide range of children and adults with disabilities. The program is lead by two certified instructors with over 25 years of combined experience. Instructors are certified in either NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped Association), CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) or both.

In addition to specializing in therapeutic riding for individuals seeking specific physical, social and emotional gains, KTHRP also offers general horseback riding lessons to all individuals seeking the benefits and enjoyment available through horseback riding.
