Horseback Riding //


For over 25 years, Mitey Riders has provided therapeutic horseback riding for children with special needs in the Charlotte region of the Carolinas.

Since welcoming our first rider in 1994, we have seen the power that horses bring to humans. We are proud to provide therapeutic riding and horsemanship experiences free of charge to our riders.
