The Mission of Dreams Go On is to provide therapeutic horseback riding sessions to adults and children of Blair County, PA, who are physically challenged, receive mental, behavioral health or family therapy services.
Certified instructors and dedicated volunteers teach responsibility, trust, rules, patience, compassion, self-confidence, teamwork, and safety. To a child or adult with a physical, developmental or emotional challenge, life can look a lot brighter on horseback. The power and warmth of the horse strengthens and tones muscles, improves balance, head control and coordination, builds self-esteem, and offers a sense of freedom and equality.
