Riverwood provides quality, professional equine assisted activities and farm-based learning opportunities for both children and adults with special needs.
Our vision is to facilitate healing, acceptance and growth for those with special needs through a partnership with equines and the natural world.
Equine assisted activities help to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination and motor development as well as emotional well being. Founded in 1995, Riverwood is a 501 (c)(3) charitable corporation serving 120 individuals weekly. We are a PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Premier Accredited center with nationally certified instructors. Riverwood is located among 53 acres in Tobaccoville, NC and serves Forsyth, Yadkin, Stokes, Surry and Davie Counties.
The Riverwood Barn was completed in 2002 and houses a 60’ x 120’ indoor arena for year round activities. It also includes a classroom with observation window, an office, 5 horse stalls, feed room and tack room.
