Our History

Horses with Heart had a very humble beginning in 1993 when Vickie Stuart’s dream to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in therapeutic and recreational horseback riding came true. She held riding sessions on weekends and during school breaks at the S Bar & J Ranch in Chino Valley. “Buddy”, a Quarter horse, was the first donated horse in the program.

In 1996, Trudy Chapman-Radley reorganized Horses with Heart, became its first Executive Director and became a PATH, Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (formerly NARHA) Certified Instructor. Sessions were moved to the ranch on Cherry Circle in Dewey where more horses joined the program.
