Welcome to Healing Strides of VA


Mission Statement
To promote wellness for people with personal challenges
who can benefit from equine assisted activities
in a safe and supportive environment.

We are so very proud to announce that our very own Sugarfoot was presented the 2013 Region 3 Horse of the YEAR Award at the 2013 PATH Int’l National Conference in Orlando Florida. Sugarfoot is a spectacular horse and our Superstar! We are so honored that he was recognized for his remarkable work that he continues to provide to us each week.


We would also like to recognize that Carol Young our Executive Director was a presenter of two seminars at the conference. She worked in conjunction with Nancy Paschall of Dream Catchers, Jack Wood of Unbridled Joy, and Dee’Anna Wright. Carol has received many compliments on her presentations and has been asked to speak at many other venues.



Healing Strides of VA (HSVA) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that was originally established in 1991 as The Roanoke Valley Therapeutic Riding Program. Through the years the organization had many temporary homes and many faces. Today, HSVA has a permanent home on the county lines of Roanoke and Franklin Counties. Our offices are housed in a 2000SF building adjoining our enclosed arena.


Healing Strides of VA is situated on 22 acres bordering Magadee Creek- just North of Boones Mill, 10 minutes South of Roanoke- Tanglewood Mall area. Healing Strides of VA operates year round. Come see us!
