Russell's Reach is a haven to horses and people alike. We pride ourselves on creating a safe and fun learning environment for every member of our team. All of our instructors are PATH Certified. They have demonstrated skills and knowledge in areas of equine management, horsemanship, instruction, teaching methodology, and disabilities. We connect with our riders at their level of ability with patience, kindness, and most importantly, fun! We believe horses grant our riders freedom and compassion in a way that is unique and magical.
Our therapy horses are truly one in a million. Each horse has arrived at a therapy career after careful consideration, training, and experience. The horses that make up the CTRP team are endlessly patient, safe, and capable partners for our riders. They are more than lesson horses, they are family.
