Therapeutic Horse riding: twin cities metro area

My son does very well with horses at his camp, and so we were looking for a rental riding stable. We couldn't find any, the stables in our area discourage the "hourly renter" in favor of lessons and leases. We did, however, come across a therapeutic riding stable:
Who is We Can Ride?

...We Can Ride, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is serving children and adults living with physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disabilities. Our goal is to enhance our client's skills and well being through challenging programs of therapeutic horseback riding and carriage driving...
This is really interesting; I think we'd qualify for this facility on two counts. We need to take a closer look and report back. They also have a blog.

John,

Do you know the cost of this venture? Perhaps the boys could do it together sometime?

Hi Betsy!

I'll send you a personal email. I think Em called to add us to the waiting list, but I've not heard back on the cost.
