Welcome to Ride to Fly!

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding and the associated learning experiences to children and adults with challenges in a safe, nurturing environment. We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people and wish to share the special gift of horsemanship with those with special needs. Ride to Fly is a PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) member operating center that has been serving the South Bay area since 1994.

We are a volunteer organization, which means we receive no government funding and rely solely on grants, fundraising events, individual and corporate donations, and minimal lesson fees to meet our operating costs.

Our instructors are PATH certified and have been specially trained in therapeutic riding techniques. Our volunteers are trained under the direct guidance of the instructors. They are taught to sidewalk, lead, tack and groom the horses. Our horses are carefully selected for their calm, and gentle natures and are highly trained.
