About Grace Rides

Grace Rides began because a small group of people decided to take a small step towards a God sized vision to love and serve others by using the horses that encompass their daily lives to invest in the lives of people with all different abilities.  Through this journey Grace has countless stories of God using selfless people to make a huge impact in the lives of of our amazing riders and their families.

Grace Rides was started in 2008, with a small core of volunteers, working out of the Oak Heaven Stables equestrian facility in Niceville.  Our aim was to continue the good work of RACE (“Riding for Adults and Children With Exceptionalities”), RACE was Okaloosa County’s first therapeutic riding program.

Since 2008, we have grown from a pilot program of 4 riders per week to over 35 rides per week in 2017.  Last year, more than 5,800 hours were invested into our program by devoted volunteers, and we provided at least 890 rides for program participants.
