20 minutes east of Huntsville in Paint Rock, AL., Open Gait
Therapeutic Riding Center offers equine activities to children that
have been diagnosed with chronic or life threatening illness. Open
Gait provides a peaceful setting in which parents and children can
get away and enjoy farm life for the day.
While participating in Open Gait’s program, kids will learn general horsemanship, riding skills, safety, and basic horse care. For those kids who may be too ill to ride, we offer such activities as grooming, feeding, petting, loving and playing with horses and the other critters on the farm.
Children participate at no cost to their families, thanks to private and corporate donors. Open Gait invites you to look at our website and see if our program can be of benefit to you and your family.

Open Gait Program Managers
