Silver Saddles Sessions
ATRC will offer a riding class, the Silver Saddles Program, for able-bodied people over age 55. You do not need to have prior experience with horses to join this group. Silver Saddles gives first-time and “used to ride years ago” riders a chance to groom, tack, learn basic horsemanship in a relaxed social environment that will be therapeutic in nature. Each rider can set their personal goals along with the help of a certified therapeutic riding instructor.
ATRC offers sessions focused on reading and literacy to students in Yancey County. Currently partnering with South Toe and Micaville Elementary Schools, helping children struggling with social and emotional challenges. This program is supported by the Yancey Fund.
ATRC Summer Camps
ATRC hosts summer camps for many different groups. These range from children with physical challenges to preschool to mental health and literacy. 2024 summer schedule yet to be determined.
