Shea Riding Academy at R.H. Dana School for Special Needs Children. Scholarships are provided to the R.H. Dana School in San Juan Capistrano for therapeutic riding lessons at Shea Riding Academy. It has been proved that therapeutic riding strengthens the body muscles and helps special needs children in their ability to walk, sit, and achieve a better standard of living. In addition, we provide for the care and support of Bliss, a therapeutic riding horse. A special program to help children with delayed development. Often a child that cannot sit up or reach will gain skills while participating in the therapeutic riding program.
