   The Saddle Light Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship

A non-profit organization created in 1991 to help people reach their full potential. Since then, through the generosity of our Sponsors and Volunteer work force, we currently provide equine therapy for riders of all ages each week. The Saddle Light Center is committed to improving the self-esteem and quality of life of the disabled population in the San Antonio area.  

Our mission is to provide equestrian therapy for children, teenagers and adults with neurological, orthopedic, learning, emotional or other disabilities.
Our goal is to inspire our riders to accomplishments previously considered beyond their capabilities.

Without the generosity of Donors and Volunteers throughout the year,
we would not be able to help nearly as many riders as we do!
