Eagles’ Wings Therapeutic Riding Center was co-founded by Keith and Ann Schaurer and Keith's mother, Sandra Knipe. The Schaurer’s became involved in Therapeutic Riding in 2003 after a nephew was diagnosed with transverse myelitis. In 2004 they began development of a business model, became involved with The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH), built a new stable, converted an existing machine shed to an indoor riding arena, began training for Keith to become a Certified Riding Instructor, and launched a successful pilot program. They received their 501 (c) (3) status from the IRS in 2006.

We tell stories to provide hope
These stories from our riding sessions are hope in the making - the success stories from other centers across the country are hope that has been made. They both document the effectiveness of therapeutic riding for people with special needs.
