Our story ...
Strides Pediatric Therapy was founded in 2019 by a group of like-minded and compassionate professionals that came together to create an organization that offers children the opportunity to make strides towards an independent and enriched life.
Strides started with a parent, an equestrian, a mental health professional, an occupational therapist, and one horse named Solomon. From there, the vision grew. Our founders understand the importance of providing meaningful and research supported therapies and treatment tools and therefore have created an organization that is able to offer a variety of tools/strategies including hippotherapy, nature based environments, sensory friendly spaces and collaborative treatment teams.
Our founders and executives are an active part of our treatment team, and strive to ensure that the mission of the organization stays focused on the children we serve.
Strides is located at The Ranch at Pole Canyon, a ten acre facility boasting a fully accessible 90’x150’ indoor arena, sensory trail accessible on foot and horseback, child-centered treatment spaces, amazing nature views and wonderful outdoor space. Located in Eagle Mountain, Strides is easily accessible from Utah County, Tooele County, and the Salt Lake Valley.
