At ManeGait, visitors hear: Join in. Mount Up. Ride Tall. These are three simple phrases that inspire small miracles for those with disabilities to happen every day in North Texas at ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship: a place of hope, healing and milestones as significant as a first word, first step and a first emotional connection, all due to riding a horse. Each year, ManeGait touches the lives of people either as volunteers, donors, riders or their families.

ManeGait’s mission is to help children and adults with disabilities move beyond their boundaries through the healing power of the horse and the dedication of a professional and caring community. ManeGait is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides weekly therapeutic riding programs to 140 adults, veterans, and children with physical, emotional, cognitive, sensory, and behavioral disabilities. Certified instructors lead our programs with the assistance of 20 skilled therapy horses and a team of over 300 volunteers each week!
