Enclosed, please find the registration packet for the Kids & Horses program. Kids & Horses currently offers three services: adaptive riding, physical therapy and occupational therapy.
Adaptive Riding, taught by a certified instructor, consists of weekly 30-minute horseback riding lessons tailored to students with special needs. There are many therapeutic benefits that come with learning how to ride a horse. The fee for adaptive riding is $40.00 per lesson. Tuition will be billed at the end of each month and is due within 30 days. We will bill Nevada Accumen, FEAT, or other organizations if the student receives funding from one of these agencies. A limited number of scholarships are available. Please contact the office to receive a scholarship application if needed. If the student is more than 10 minutes late, he/she will not be allowed to participate and will be charged $40 for the lesson. Students will be also charged $40 for no-showing. Please be sure to notify us as soon as possible if the student will not make it to their lesson (24 hours preferred). If a student is absent two times in a session without prior notification for the absence, the student will be excused from the program.
Physical Therapy targets skills such as balance, strength, and coordination to reach functional goals such as improved walking, stair climbing or running in a game of soccer. Occupational Therapy treatments focus on fine motor, gross motor and/or sensory integration skills such as what is needed to fasten a button, write a sentence, tolerate haircuts or focus on a school assignment. Both therapies provide weekly 60-minute sessions. Goals are addressed while riding a horse for half the session and participating in traditional treatments in a therapy room for the other half. The cost varies, depending on the client’s medical insurance plan. We accept Medicaid, Hometown Health, and several other insurance plans. Please speak to a therapist to determine your cost and establish a plan.
We welcome family involvement and provide on-the-job training. You do not have to be horse savvy to volunteer. Help us keep our operating costs down by becoming an integral part of the program.
