Somerset Therapeutic Association for Riding - STAR


Since 1995, S.T.A.R. has been providing safe, closely supervised riding lessons to physically and/or mentally challenged children (and occasional adults) of Somerset County, Pennsylvania. In a typical training session, a disabled child is helped to mount a carefully trained horse, and is then escorted on a ride for twenty minutes by three volunteers. Children who have taken part in the program for years have made remarkable progress in both their physical abilities and their social capacities. We are fortunate in the depth of experience available in our program provided Physical Therapists, Physician Assistants, Teachers, and Physicians. Because of this experience, we feel confident working with riders who have severe disabilities. S.T.A.R. has built a cohesive, dedicated, humane unit with an ongoing goal of reaching out to individuals who are isolated by their disabilities, to draw them into the community.
