Shooting Star Ranch
Do not go where the path may Lead
Go instead where there is not a path and leave a Trail

Nevada Joe

You’re brown and you’re strong
For riding along

You’re furry and soft
For sitting across

You’re silky and smooth
I can feel every move

Your eyes are so kind
I wish you were mine

You’re gentle and caring
Your love is for sharing

You have a big heart
And patience, too
You are a gift to all who meet you

Your legs are strong, powerful and fast
But you take baby-steps for the kids in your class

You’re sleek and solid and have a strong chest
I like riding you backwards the best!

The wind in your mane and colored reins
Gives kids a chance to never be the same

You give kids hope and warm happy dreams
New friends and self-esteem

You’re fun to ride and you keep me safe
Can I ride you in the next Extreme Cowboy Race??

You’re were wild and proud, now you’re quiet and tame
You carry special riders and teach them games

You CAN do it all—you’re my friend and it’s true
Nevada Joe, I love you!!


Shooting Star Ranch Therapeutic Riding Program provides an equine assisted therapy program designed to benefit children and adults with special needs. Individuals experience physical, psychological and educational benefits when astride a horse. Riding on a horse gently and rhythmically moves the rider’s trunk and pelvis in a manner similar to that of the human walk, with resulting improvement in coordination, balance, flexibility, strength and control.

Therapeutic Riding has been utilized by centers throughout the United States for over twenty years. It is a proven method to exercise, mobilize, and motivate the mind and body. It emphasizes the rider’s abilities, not disabilities. There are currently over 750 NARHA (North American Riding Handicapped Association) across the country and we are proud to be one of those centers.

Our facility offers private or group lesson, for all disciplines of riding. We also provide camps throughout the summer session. If you know someone who could benefit from the joys and rewards of a therapeutic horseback riding program, don’t wait, call today. Visitors and Volunteers are always welcomed.

Come ride with us at Shooting Star where we teach riding but our goal is therapy, and we Dare to Dream with all our students.
