A new therapeutic riding center designed to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities has recently made its home in Hot Springs. A love for horses and their son’s Down syndrome diagnosis prompted Zach and Katja Summerlin to found Sunshine Therapeutic Riding Center (STRC) after realizing the need for this type of service in Garland County. Their vision is to make hippotherapy and therapeutic riding services accessible to all individuals with disabilities in the area for little to no cost.
Hot Springs is home to a new nonprofit organization that utilizes horses to deliver essential, previously unavailable services to adults and children with disabilities (cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, wheelchair users, intellectual and developmental disabilities). The organization brings therapeutic riding and access to the only hippotherapy program in the county.
