Queen of Hearts Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. (QOH) is a nonprofit facility that offers programs supporting the development of disabled children and adults living in Southern California's Inland Empire and surrounding areas.
QOH was founded in 1998, and is a Premier Accredited Center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship Int'l. (PATH) - an organization dedicated to changing and enriching lives by promoting excellence in equine-assisted activities and therapies.
We are dedicated to providing an avenue to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children, youth, and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities through therapeutic horseback riding lessons and other equine activities.
The Center affords the riders opportunities for mainstream integration, normalization, and socialization through equine activities. Our students are challenged by professional instructors and trained volunteers to improve their physical health, social skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment and control.
We are committed to being an inspiration and an educational resource to the therapeutic profession - both regionally and nationally - by demonstrating that therapy can and should be both productive and fun.
