Several Adelphoi residents have taken part in therapeutic horseback riding as part of their treatment plan at Adelphoi. Riding allows the youth to gain confidence, as well as patience and self-esteem.Each lesson is preplanned with the youth to set goals and lesson plans. These plans allow staff to keep track of the progression of each youth.

Currently, Adelphoi has six students riding at Nickers ‘N Neighs Therapeutic Riding Center in Acme. The mission of the organization is “to improve the lives of children and adults with special challenges through a therapeutic partnership with horses.”
