Make each day your masterpiece

“In their eyes, we find solace and our troubles melt away; in their presence, we find sanctuary and our spirits soar.” – Patricia Atchison

Paramount Adaptive Riding Center exists to enrich the lives of others, especially those with special needs, using the therapeutic nature of horses.

Paramount ARC offers riding lessons tailored to fit our clients’ individual needs.  All lessons are taught by a PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor who specializes in making lessons safe and accessible for clients with a wide range of abilities.  

Our Instructor

Krista spent 9 years as a classroom teacher in grades 8, 6, and 5. She has a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and still holds an active teaching license in the state of Ohio. When she’s not at the barn, her kids keep her busy and active!

Important notes

Paramount does not discriminate against race, gender, sexuality, religion or nationality. Paramount accepts students based upon the organization’s ability to meet the needs of the participant. In order to provide the most rewarding experience, Paramount can only accept students for which it has the appropriate horses, staff and volunteers.  Each person to apply to Paramount’s Adaptive Riding Program is different. It is not always possible to meet the specific needs of every individual. If Paramount does not have the appropriate horses, staff, or equipment for a participant, recommendations can be made to other reputable programs that may be better equipped.
