New Heights Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1998. We are a the only PATH premier therapeutic equestrian center in the state of Louisiana. We are dedicated to positively impacting lives through our life changing equine therapy. 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 also have access to 22 acres of wooded riding trails across from our property for our riders to enjoy. We have a fully handicap accessible facility with a covered arena and a 16 stall barn. 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 schedule a tour our facility and get involved!
Come and experience your healing through the power of the horse!
New Heights is proud to offer numerous services and programs designed to provide life changing therapy to meet the specific needs of each rider.
Some of our services include therapeutic riding in the form of Adaptive Therapy and Hippotherapy.
Scholarships are available to those in need.
Our services benefit a variety of people including those with developmental delays, down syndrome, autism, post traumatic stress, paralysis, multiple sclerosis, and more.
