Heaven’s Gates, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that offers therapeutic and recreational carriage driving, horseback riding, and horsemanship skills. We are located in Seville, Ohio on a 27-acre farm, operating with professional staff and volunteers that work closely with individuals to ensure safe skills and handling of equines. We serve children and adults with or without special needs.
Each horse is a special teacher, each with a different lesson to teach. Horses are great communicators. Horses help the “whole” person, child or adult, with social, emotional and physical needs. Socially, they show us how to be leaders, how to practice compassion and feel empathy. Emotionally, they inspire confidence, facilitate healing and establish trust in self and others. Physically, horses can help with motor skills, exercise and overall health and well-being.
