McKeever's First Ride | Amputees | Orthotics | Military

Horses & Humans... Partnering for Pleasure, Growth & Healing.

Who Is It For?

Amputees

Youth with limb differences, as young as 2 years old have been thrilled to discover the joy of being around horses, and engaging in adaptive riding. Youth, teens, and adult participants with limb loss and limb differences have enjoyed many adventures at McKeever's First Ride events.

Orthotic Patients

It is one thing to adjust to life with an orthotic or prosthetic device, but it is another thing to EXCEL in one's "new normal" life. McKeever's First Ride acquaints guests from 2 to 82 with adaptive sports in a venue well suited to accommodate those who use prosthetic/orthotic devices, and wheelchairs.  

All Military Personnel

At McKeever's First Ride, we are eager to show all military personnel the gratitude and honor they deserve, for serving this great nation. Vets and active military personnel enjoy fellowship with one another, as they enjoy a day to relax and recharge.
