New Heights Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1998. We are a premier therapeutic equestrian center dedicated to positively impacting lives through the healing power of the horse. We help people who have physical, cognitive, and emotional difficulties reach their full potential. We serve a wide variety of groups and individuals in our community and beyond.

Our facility is located on eight beautiful acres adjacent to Summergrove Polo Farms in Folsom, Louisiana. We have a fully handicap accessible facility with a covered arena and a 16 stall barn. In addition to our eight acres we have access to 22 acres of wooded riding trails adjacent to our property for participants to enjoy. Our arena is equipped with a wheelchair accessible ramp and a lift, which can hold up to 1,200 pounds to assist wheelchair bound clients to mount the horse.

We operate with the help of our community, volunteers, and generous donors who support our mission every day. We invite you to come tour our facility and get involved!
