2021  Programs

In the Fall of 2018, thanks to the generous support of the Miami Cancer Institute, Sofia's Hope joined forces with Whispering Manes Therapeutic Riding Center and began offering children in treatment the opportunity to spend time at the barn with horses.  Patients, who must be accompanied by a parent/ legal guardian, will not only spend time riding a horse, they will be participating in unmounted activities (i.e., grooming, making horse treats, etc.), as well as having lunch before heading back home.  There are two annual sessions, in the Spring and the Fall.

This summer, due to COVID-19, we had to move forward with great caution adhering to social distancing measures and required use of masks.  And instead of a half day camp, patients and siblings are invited to come for private one-hour sessions where they will learn about horsemanship, grooming and receive a riding lesson.  Although helmets will be provided, each participant must wear long pants and tennis shoes or boots. Sessions will be available this summer. Please check back for more dates or subscribe below to receive monthly newsletter.

In order to comply with social distancing rules, only patient and/or siblings and one parent or a legal guardian will be permitted and both must wear a mask.  Completed Physician Forms for all participants are REQUIRED. Click here to download the forms.

Transportation will be courtesy of Miami Tour Company and will be to/from NCH, Baptist/MCI and UM/alex's place.
