More about 7 Star Therapeutic Riding Center

Enhancing Lives Through Equine Assisted Therapy: Equine-assisted therapy provides an alternative form of therapy that cannot be obtained through conventional therapy.  The gait of the horse mimics that of a human. Through the motion of the horse, clients develop core muscle strength, and stimulation of brain patterns, which improves balance and coordination. Clients learn to concentrate and focus on riding, which helps with sequencing, and learning to follow oral instructions.

Our Vision:   To facilitate healing of the mind, body, and spirit through the grace and strength of the horse.

Jenny Inzerillo joined HPPR in 2015 as the host of High Plains Morning, our live music program that airs weekdays at 9 am to noon CST. Broadcasting from KJJP in beautiful downtown Amarillo, she helps listeners wake up with inspired music from our region and beyond.
