My two boys, ages 6 and 4, have taken many horseback riding lessons with Tom Goodspeed. My older son has PDD-NOS, a multi-sensory processing disorder. Tom took great care working with him. He was gentle, trusting and kind. Both my sons looked forward to returning to his farm each week. The lessons were just the right amount of time, and the information Tom was giving them was age appropriate. I would highly recommend Tom’s instruction and, approach to therapy, for any child!

Our daughter Janessa absolutely loved her horseback therapy sessons. The smile on her face was so big and bright and she always looked forward to it! We owe it all to the staff who were so compassionate, understanding and full of energy. They never failed to leave us smiling and excited about our next session. Helping On Horseback brought so much joy to our daughter and I encourage anyone to take part in this wonderful program.
My clients greatly enjoyed the time they spent at Helping on Horseback. I could tell by they way they sat on the horse the fun they had and how riding helped build their self-confidence, balance, strength, and boosted their mood. Tom and his assistants were always very welcoming, helpful patient, and accommodating of all ability levels. I’ve always believed in the power of the human-animal bond, and it was so great to see it in action thanks to Tom, his assistants, and of course his horses.
