Since 2001, Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility has been assisting children with special needs by providing horseback riding services.
Located in Plainfield Illinois, students as young as three years of age come from all over the Chicagoland area. Ready Set Ride bases its program on developmental techniques utilizing the horses as a means of mobility for the children. Certified therapeutic riding instructors guide the students and closely monitor individual needs to encourage consistent improvement. Therapy is conducted in the form of games on horseback which incorporate physical, speech, occupational, developmental and recreational therapy.
Ready Set Ride's mission is to provide therapeutic equine recreational activities to special needs or terminally ill individuals regardless of race or religion.
Want to see what we're all about?
Our community is part of why we have been around for so long. Without the support from local businesses, the Villages of our surrounding neighborhoods and all the friends and family we wouldn't be able to operate and do all that we do. One of our very own community members, Anthony from Caponeyboy Productions is the perfect example. He took the time to come out to the barn, see what we are all about and produce this piece for us!
