    Golden Dreams, of Middleburg, VA, helps children
    and adults with disabilities rehabilitate through
    equestrian activities. These equestrian activities
    are specifically created to cater to each individual’
    s specific needs in order to create the most
    beneficial program possible. Equestrian exercises
    have been shown to aid in rehabilitation by
    improving balance, coordination and communication,
    emotional strength, physical strength, posture and
    stamina. Additionally, the activities we offer are
    fun and rewarding to our participants.

    Individuals with almost any cognitive, physical
    and/or emotional disability can benefit from
    therapeutic riding through safe and supervised
    interaction with equines. Riding lessons are taught
    by NARHA certified riding instructors assisted
    by up to three volunteers per rider.

    In addition to the riding lessons, Golden Dreams
    offers special needs programs for regional schools
    and awareness programs for schools and the
    community at large. We also participate annually
    in the Loudoun County Farm Tour.
