We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives and futures of our community members. Our students represent all age groups and ranges of abilities and disabilities, and our instructors have a combined 75 years of professional horsemanship instruction.
We believe horses are the best teachers. They have an unparalleled ability of holding a student’s attention, love and interest. Our programs utilize this power to teach students integral life skills while they take on the fun and rewarding challenge of equestrian sports.
Our students benefit from our programs in unique ways, but all realize a higher self-esteem, better communication skills and a greater sense of responsibility. Many of our students find it easier to control their lives once they learn to control such a massive animal. The benefits of riding go beyond the bounds of the arena – our students progress in life as much as in the saddle!

A horse is the projection of peoples'
dreams about themselves -
strong, powerful, beautiful -
and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
Our mission at Sande School of Horsemanship
