My name is Rachel Sorensen. I’m the Equestrian
Program Manager here at the National Ability Center and we offer riding lessons to people
with disabilities. The people that we serve are in an age range from two and a half or
three years old up to 70 to 80 years old and we also serve various types of disabilities.
Some examples might be cerebral palsy, developmental disabilities, autism, down syndrome. We serve
people who have cognitive and physical disabilities as well as emotional or psychological disabilities.
We do have a group of boys that are considered youth at risk that ride with us as well and
as you can see behind me right now we have adults with developmental disabilities riding
in our program.
