Saddle Up! logo

Saddle Up! is Middle Tennessee’s oldest and largest organization offering equine assisted activities and therapies, and it is the only one exclusively serving children and youth with disabilities.

Our mission is to provide children and youth with disabilities the opportunity to grow and develop through therapeutic, educational and recreational programs. Launched in the summer of 1990 with horseback riding lessons one night a week for 10 students, Saddle Up! now operates year-round and offers our foundation program of recreational therapeutic riding, hippotherapy, equine facilitated learning, the Saddle Up! Equestrian Club, and multiple workshops/seminars.

Over the past 25 years, Saddle Up! has served more than 1,300 children with disabilities, provided more than 50,000 hours of services, and cared for more than 130 noble horses who served our program. More than 500 volunteers gave over 17,000 hours of service at Saddle Up! in 2017. Saddle Up! is a PATH Intl. Premier Accredit Center and the only member center in Tennessee of the American Hippotherapy Association.

Saddle Up! deeply appreciates the support of our donors, event sponsors and event attendees whose generosity helps keep Saddle Up! the place “Where all children are equal in the saddle.
