Valley Riding Therapeutic Riding Program

Valley Riding, Inc. a non-profit affiliate of Cleveland Metroparks, was established in 1988. We manage the Rocky River Stables. The stable is located in the park system and are directly connected to bridle trails along the Emerald Necklace. Valley Riding employs professional and certified riding instructors to provide English riding lessons, therapeutic riding lessons, as well as, pony and horse camps. Other services include horse boarding and educational tours. We also provide riding opportunities for under served populations through partnerships with Cleveland Metroparks, public schools, and urban community youth programs. The backbone of many of our programs are our volunteers. From side walking with the Therapeutic Riding Program, to helping the pony campers saddle their ponies, volunteers are a critical part of Valley Riding.

More information on all of the above activities and programs can be found here on our website and we would be happy to answer any additional questions you may have by phone or e-mail. Our main office is at the Rocky River Stables: 216-267-2525. Our e-mail address is
