Ride. Smile. Grow.

AHEAD With Horses is devoted to improving the quality of life of disabled, disadvantaged, and special needs children through equine therapy using vaulting also known as gymnastics on a horse. Whether it’s seeing a smile from an otherwise “non-responsive” child, or watching someone taking their first steps, the hundreds of children we serve each year regularly hit major physical, mental, and emotional milestones—gifts that last a lifetime.


Help us move to our Forever Home. All donations are greatly appreciated.



Currently our schedule is full, but if you want to put your
child on the wait list please complete the intake form.

COVID-19 Updates – Updated July 2023

Masks are now optional for all students, staff and volunteers.

If you are showing symptoms of Covid (or a cold or flu), have tested positive for Covid, or have been exposed to someone positive for Covid, you may not return to lessons or volunteering until you/child:

  • are at least 5 days past onset of symptoms/exposure (onset of symptoms counts as day zero)
  • mild symptoms have resolved or are improving
  • have been fever free for at least 24 hours (without use of a fever reducing medication)

Please see the CDC and LA County Department of Health recommendations regarding exposure and isolation and for more details.

The health of all of our students, families, volunteers and friends is most important.
