Queen of Hearts Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc’s COVID-19 Virus Update as of July 14, 2020

Happy anniversary to us!

Our silver anniversary was April 4, 2020: 20 years since Queen of Hearts Therapeutic Riding Center Inc. opened its corral gates!  Through the years and this temporary health crisis, our organization’s mission is unchanged: to improve the quality of life in the health, safety and wellness of persons with special mental, physical, and/or behavioral needs.

We are quite thankful that we are now able to partially open in compliance with the Riverside County COVID-19 restrictions!  We are currently accepting applications for new clients and welcoming back those we can safely serve while remaining in compliance with masks/face shields and social distancing. 

As always, we have our pledge and responsibility to share with you what we are doing in response to COVID-19: We have an absolute obligation to ensure the welfare of our therapy horses, and we are committed to keeping our dearly valued, trained professional staff employed as we adjust through this difficult period. We thank those very special volunteers who have been able to assist us withthe care for our horses and facilities.

We also want to thank those who have been able to financially support us during the pause in our services.  Unfortunately, however, we also needed to dip into our “rainy-day” fund. To help us stay on our feet as we recover from the COVID-19 closure, we designed a campain for those who want to assist our very special horse and human program staff: https://www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1712497 We would be delighted if you are able to help us celebrate our silver anniversary with a little “silver” by your contribution!   

We encourage you to contact us with any questions or thoughts: (951) 734-6300 or info@queenofheartsranch.com.  We do all we can, as best we can, for our clients, volunteers, staff and the community. All of us at Queen of Hearts hope that you and your family stay healthy, and we wish you the best as we navigate through this difficult time.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you back at the ranch.

We are dedicated

We are dedicated to providing an avenue to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children, youth, and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities through therapeutic horseback riding lessons and other equine activities.

The Center affords the riders opportunities for mainstream integration, normalization, and socialization through equine activities.  Our students are challenged by professional instructors and trained volunteers to improve their physical health, social skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment and control.

We are committed to being an inspiration and an educational resource to the therapeutic profession – both regionally and nationally – by demonstrating that therapy can and should be both productive and fun.
