LiftMeUp! was founded in 1975 as a hippotherapy program (the use of horseback riding as therapeutic or rehabilitative treatment, especially as a means of improving coordination, balance and strength). Today, we offer a variety of programs, including hippotherapy, summer camps designed to integrate children inside and outside of our program, yoga on horseback, a sports horse program, and a veteran’s riding program. Our mission is to provide safe and effective therapeutic riding instruction, to help our riders physically (such as the ability to sit or stand unassisted), improve their focus, and enhance their social and communication skills.
Food and refreshments will be provided on the Great Falls Village Green after the race.
