Help Us Make A Difference!
Sunrise, Inc is a not-for-profit corporation, established in Wayne County in 1980, whose purpose is to promote the health and social development of physically, mentally and socially disabled people through therapeutic horseback riding.
Sunrise is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl) center member and offers horseback riding and ground lessons to qualifying participants as recreational therapy. All of our lessons are taught by or supervised by a PATH Intl registered instructor.
Sunrise offers lessons year round. Our activity calendar is based around three ten week sessions. Lessons and outings are also available out-of-session and during winter months. Sunrise has an indoor and an outdoor arena, so activities usually take place rain or shine. We currently maintain a herd of twelve working horses and ponies, and work hard to match participants with the right horse for them.
We welcome volunteers and donors. use the links to the left to learn more about how you can help Sunrise.
Since 1980 we have helped thousands of individuals, using tailored programs for each individuals needs, taught by a certified PATH instructor.
Our goal is to provide services to any individual, adult or child, who may be physically, mentally, or socially disabled, along with disadvantaged kids, without consideration to their economic status or their ability to pay for a lesson. It is because of our donors, sponsors and fundraising efforts that make this possible.
