At Ride On St. Louis we promote health and enrich lives through love, joy and holistic healing. We are a comprehensive therapy, conditioning and learning non-profit organization serving adults and children with disabilities, veterans and youth in and around the St. Louis area. Ride On St. Louis focuses on healing programs that incorporates the movement of the horse, equine environment and horse-human interaction to provide substantial and sustaining quality of life improvements.

Ride On St. Louis has the joy and opportunity to witness miracles first hand. Some clients speak their first words on our therapy horses, take their first steps, and make substantial improvements in their first weeks at Ride On St. Louis that surpass years of other activities and/or therapies received.


Ride On St. Louis became the first equine-assisted activities and therapies program to operate in the South County area of St. Louis, Missouri. The initial staff consisted of the Founder and Program Director, Marita Wassman, an occupational therapy assistant and several helpers who ran the facility on a volunteer basis for four years. With community support, hard work and a vision, Ride On St. Louis has become a renowned equine-assisted activities and therapies center offering elite services through a knowledgeable and devoted staff, trained volunteers and happy, healthy equine partners.
