Living Hope Equine Therapy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, EIN 92-1169423, operating out of Poco Vista Ranch in Ponder, Tx. We provide therapeutic riding and horsemanship lessons to Veterans, children and adults with cognitive, physical and emotional challenges. We strive to provide an in-depth experience for participants similar to owning and being responsible for their own horse. By adopting a more boutique style approach to lessons, Living Hope can focus on each client’s individual needs and create personalized plans for optimal progression.

​Included in the all-encompassing vision, Living Hope focuses on the whole family and not just the client. We offer fellowship opportunities, support, and strive to be a safe haven for riders and family members. We are proud to be a certified Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH, Intl.)  center.
