How do I get started?
Horsefeathers offers therapeutic riding lessons and hippotherapy, as well as private lessons for anyone seeking to learn or improve their horsemanship skills. While our primary focus is working with individuals who have special needs, we also welcome those without a disability.
Getting more information is easy: call Horsefeathers at (847) 234-2411 and tell us more about your needs as well as to schedule an initial riding lesson or screening. During a screening, one of our therapists will meet with you and your child to discuss goals, get any relevant medical history and determine whether hippotherapy or therapeutic riding is appropriate. If hippotherapy is indicated, a doctor's prescription is needed in order to begin and a therapist, strategizing with you, will develop an individual treatment plan.
No prescription is necessary for Therapeutic Riding.
