How to Join



All students who have never participated at Three Gaits or have not participated in more than one year, must have an assessment before they start lessons to assure safety and benefit to the student.

Some student’s health conditions may not be appropriate for therapeutic riding. The assessment helps determine class placement and identify goals for the term.

Please send the student’s name, a responsible party’s (self/parent/guardian/case manager) name, email address and phone number to

When Three Gaits has an opening, we will contact students with a targeted lead time of one month.

We currently have a six to eighteen month wait list to join.  With new instructors in the certification process and searches underway for therapy horses, we are working to move your student into lessons as quickly as possible.

Wondering What to Wear?

  • A safety helmet must be worn and is provided.
  • Longs pants – no slippery fabrics.
  • Shoes with sturdy heel or non-slip soles are recommended.
  • No sandals, Crocs, clogs, or open-toed or open-heeled shoes.
