HORSEPOWER Therapeutic Learning Center is a non-profit organization serving the Piedmont Triad community since 1995 and affiliated with the Piedmont Saddle Club since 1998. We are a premier PATH International center and provide therapeutic equine activities for over 300 individuals with disabilities each year.
We hope you will join us for our annual Holiday Open House,
Saturday, December 14th from 11am-1pm.
This is an opportunity to see the many faces of HORSEPOWER. We will have refreshments to share with friends and family who make our mission possible all year long. Enjoy visiting with staff, students, volunteers, supporters and their families and visit with our special therapists, our horses—in all their holiday cheer and gear.
If you are interested in bringing food to share please let me know.
Hope to see you soon!
As you witness the colors of fall bursting all around you notice too, the colors blending together to welcome exciting changes going on right here at HORSEPOWER TLC. Please read the link below for a terrific article written by Susan Ladd at the News & Record entitled “Getting A New Lease On Life”. Susan was able to capture our story of service to community members who live each day at a disadvantage. It is a wonderful narrative linking this community to our equine programs that offer a partial solution to the multifaceted needs of people with physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities; and at-risk youth.
It alludes also to the opportunity for expansion of programs to embrace area youth dealing with literacy deficiencies; with Veteran equine training and Volunteer programs; as well as income producing programs directed at Youth and Business Leadership Programs for High Performance Teams; and more. It is an inspiring tale of generosity; of hope; and of caring. As usual, our horse partners remain as the catalyst to engaging all clients; while it is our certified staff and deeply talented volunteers who help shape personal experiences. Together they have a unique ability to touch the hearts of all participants while facilitating the miracles we see all around us. As a friend of HORSEPOWER, you see that too and we are blessed to have you as part of our HORSEPOWER Family! Each of you is part of something significant and meaningful and we are so proud to walk with you on this journey of service!
A special thanks to Robb Wells of Gabriel Berry Weston & Wells for heading up our talented and committed legal team of key attorneys with Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard.

HORSEPOWER is a therapeutic equestrian program, that provides both challenges and rewards to people with physical, mental, emotional and social disabilities. These disabilities may include multiple sclerosis, autism, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease, Down's syndrome, stroke and depression, as well as victims of physical, mental or emotional abuse. Through interaction with horses and horseback riding, these individuals derive educational, physical and social benefits that include learning new skills, building self-confidence, enhanced physical fitness, increased muscle strength and flexibility, interpersonal skills, concentration skills, patience and self-discipline.
Through certified instructors, dedicated volunteers, generous donors and trained horses, many people with disabilities are able to participate in this unique and enriching program. In addition, we offer a Youth Program for "at risk", and a HORSEPOWER Club for local high school students.
