Equestrian Programs

The National Ability Center’s Equestrian Program offers three different forms of Equine Assisted Activities or Therapy (EAAT). Adaptive Horseback Riding, Hippotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) take place six days a week throughout the year, thanks to the heated 17,000 square foot indoor arena and barn.

Hi Lorna! I will connect you with our Program and Registration teams, so that they can review your specific needs and discuss which activities would be the best fit! Meanwhile, if you’d like to reach out, you can also email info@discovernac.org or call 435.649.3991 to talk to an adaptive recreation expert.

Hi! I am interested in donating my horse to your equestrian program. He has gotten older and I love him dearly, but simply cannot afford to keep feeding him. I would love him to go to a facility that would love him as much as I do and give him the attention that he adores. Please contact me about options for donating a horse to your lovely location.

Hi Kelly- Thank you for thinking of the National Ability Center’s programs. I am not sure our policies on this, but will forward your inquiry to our Equestrian team and they will be in touch.

I’ve read about the benefits of hippotherapy and want to get my son signed up, but he is deathly scared of horses? Like just doesn’t want to get close. Is there some sort of alternative y’all offer or recommend?

Luke, we’d love to get you involved. I am passing your inquiry along to our equestrian and program teams. They should be able to make some suggestions!

Luke – Marci who runs our equestrian programs may have some options for you but would need some more information about your son. You can contact Marci by emailing marcib@discovernac.org or calling 435-200-0999. Feel free to comment back here if you have any trouble getting in touch! We hope to see you and your son here at the ranch soon!

Hello, My daughter has multiple medical issues (all stable at this time), behavioral issues and developmental delays. She has found a love of horses through emotional equine therapy. This is once a week and, ideally, therapy will decrease. She has learned how to care for horses and their stalls and would like to learn more about riding. I would like to know what services are available through you.

Hi Teresa! We have many equestrian opportunities including EAL, hippotherapy, adaptive riding, trail riding and Camp Giddy-up. I’ve forwarded your request onto Marci Bender and Tracy Meier on our program team who can talk more specifically to your daughter’s needs/goals. Can’t wait to see you and your family here at the ranch!
