Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility

Since 2001, Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility has been assisting special needs or terminally ill children by providing horseback riding services.

Located in Plainfield Illinois, students as young as three years of age come from all over the Chicagoland area. It is the goal of Ready Set Ride to assist these children in achieving the highest quality of life possible through the use of horses and individualized activities focused on the needs of the student. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to participate in therapy sessions. Volunteers are also an integral part of the therapy sessions at Ready Set Ride.

Meet The Horses!

Meet The Horses

This Foxtrotter is very gentle, loves treats almost as much as he loves kids! He can fetch a ball or a hula-hoop, just tell him which one to go get, then watch him take a bow!

Therapeutic horseback riding is to improve the balance, coordination, focus, independence, confidence, motor and social skills. Therapeutic riding is beneficial to children and adults who present with any of a wide range of cognitive, physical, and emotional conditions.
