Central Kentucky Riding for Hope (CKRH) was founded in 1981 as a riding program for individuals with physical disabilities. Over the years, CKRH has grown into a multi-faceted program that is dedicated to enriching the community by improving the quality of life and the health of children and adults with special physical, cognitive, emotional and social needs through therapeutic activities with the horse. Equine assisted activities and therapies provide independence, achievement and community to the individuals that we serve. Ability…Not Disability is the CKRH way!
The program is operated at the renowned Kentucky Horse Park, which is a perfect setting of one thousand acres of rolling countryside, dotted with hundreds of horses representing over 35 breeds.
CKRH is completely dependent upon community support. Funding and volunteer support is provided by numerous individuals as well as various community service-based organizations
