Rancho Escondido Therapeutic Riding & Equine Assisted Therapy (RETREAT) is a 501(c)(3) New Mexico Nonprofit Corporation that provides Therapeutic Horseback Riding and Traditional Riding Lessons to children, adolescents and adults of?ALL?abilities.

We are located in the Santa Teresa area of Sunland Park, New Mexico, right outside of El Paso, Texas, and we provide services to people in the greater Las Cruces, Mesilla Valley and El Paso metro area.

The mission of RETREAT, INC. is to be a haven for riders of?ALL?abilities, from typically developing children who just want to learn to ride, to children facing the extraordinary challenges that come with Autism and related developmental disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Down Syndrome, Behavioral Disorders, and other challenges.

It is our hope that, through equine-based therapeutic intervention, we can make a measurable improvement in the quality of the lives of?ALL?riders!
