Therapeutic Riding in Manhattan

We provide an environment that promotes growth for all types of individuals. Riders can participate in positive interactions with instructors, volunteers, and other riders. They form tight bonds with the horses as they learn the ins and outs of horsemanship.

About our Program

  • Group classes are 1 hour/week and are lead by a trained Instructor. Group classes are organized according to age, type of disability and level of riding skill.
  • Private classes are 1 hour/week and are lead by a trained Instructor.
  • Services are offered year round, with the exception of holidays and inclement weather.
  • Tuition is based on a flat rate of $50/lesson. Payment plans are available, as well as financial assistance for those who qualify.

Hope Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center is not a clinical facility, and we therefore do not accept insurance.

Rider Intake Process

The New Participant Application contains an Application, Waiver & Release Form, and Photo and Name Release Form. The Physician’s Statement is to be completed and dated by the participant’s doctor before the application will be accepted. A Seizure Disorder Form needs to filled out by the participant’s doctor if the participant is seizure prone.

• Email to the Program Coordinator:
• Mail to Hope Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center in Manhattan (3841 W. 69th Ave Manhattan, KS 66503)

Once Hope Ranch has received your completed application, we will contact you to schedule a New Participant Evaluation. An evaluation helps us develop relations with instructors, parents, and participants. It allows the instructors to develop lesson plans based on the parents’ and participant’s riding goals and be more informed about the individuals in our program.

Upon completion of an evaluation and determination by Hope Ranch that we are able to safely accommodate the participant, the participant is able to register for services. Participants will be instructed further about this at evaluation.
