Discover the joy and wellbeing that riding horses can bring!

Using horsemanship to promote equal opportunity, social justice, and respect for all living beings.

Horses for a Change provides high quality riding instruction for individuals of all ages, experience, abilities and backgrounds at Frog Hollow Farm in the Hudson Valley.

We’ve seen for ourselves the healing power that working with horses can bring, whether it’s experiencing riding and horsemanship for therapeutic purposes, or immersing yourself in competitive dressage. And our mission is to share this positive experience with the world!

“We are thankful to Nancy Rosen and her wonderful equine and human teachers for the most wonderful place to become a rider of skill and caring.”

Discover animal friends and skills you didn’t know you had!

Horses are incredible, intelligent, and responsive creatures. Take care of them and they’ll take care of you… there’s a reason they’ve been human companions for centuries!
But spending time riding and caring for horses is more than just fun—it can help you mentally, emotionally, and physically.

A horse's soothing rhythm, strength, and warmth improve your circulation and muscle tone. Meanwhile, the discipline you get from caring for your mount benefits your mind and spirit, and helps nurture your ability to take on responsibility and feel confident in yourself.

Riding and caring for horses has been proven to:

  • Reduce anxiety and boost self-esteem
  • Teach patience and focus
  • Build relationships and improve communication
  • Provide physical activity in a way that is fun and engaging
