  ABOUT US

"CLOSE YOUR EYES, CLEAR YOUR HEART, LET IT GO!"

We are a unique therapeutic riding center in Northwestern Wisconsin with accredited instructors from the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH Intl.). Our instructors are not only licensed and certified by PATH Int’l., but have additional certifications in related disciplines such as recreational therapy, occupational therapy, emergency medical services, and secondary education, ensuring high quality professionally trained instruction.

Rock Ridge Retreat is a 501(c)3 organization, founded in the state of Wisconsin by David Graham and Cindy Selle ensuring that all societies and their families are provided with the tools necessary to overcome challenges that are faced. Our most solemn obligation is to ensure that our clientele and their families receive support to nurture hope, create a safe haven, and cohesive environment to feel at home and welcome through multiple challenges.

Rock Ridge Retreat consists of 57 acres, an indoor lighted arena, and an outdoor arena. Ten acres is devoted to farmland to support operational requirements and 20 acres of extended riding trails. The property is enclosed with 2,800 feet of fence to provide smaller turnout pastures for the horses. The property is a prime location within 65 miles of the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.

Our clientele will be inclusive of all societies and their families who seek a quality, well-run equestrian facility to provide innovative programs that meet the needs of a diverse participant base.
