Giving SMILES to individuals who would benefit from therapy on horseback

Organization Profile

Our mission is to provide Recreational Therapy on Horseback for children and adults with a physical, mental, or speech disability. We teach them a life time skill and enhance their quality of life and give their families hope. Therapeutic Horseback Riding (also known as an equine-assisted activity or adaptive riding) is used to teach riding skills to people with disabilities. Therapeutic riding is beneficial for children and adults who present a wide range of cognitive, physical, and emotional conditions. S.M.I.L.E. Inc. is now celebrating our 25th year of providing Therapeutic Horseback Riding to Northeast Nebraska.
