UpReach Therapeutic Riding Center

Founded in 1992 by Edie Loeb-Tomasko with two riders and a borrowed horse, UpReach sits on 96 beautiful acres in Goffstown, NH.  We have grown to serve 75-80 students in varied programming, with 14 equine partners, 5 full-time and 4 part-time staff, and over 120 active volunteers!!

Mission: UpReach is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the physical, emotional, and psychological development of challenged children and adults through progressive therapies, specifically those centered around the horse.

Vision: Through providing high quality equine assisted learning programs, UpReach strives towards excellence in its field.  With the help of our equine friends, we are dedicated to enhancing quality of life for those we serve, by providing challenge, promoting independence, and celebrating success.


What's New!

Help fill the hay dock before fall and winter!

Help us purchase hay to fill the haydock and feed our favorite horses and ponies through the fall and winter months. It costs $6.50 per bale of hay and our hungry horses eat approximately 50 bales each week. If you can help, please make a donation of any size to help us maintain the highest standards of care for our herd. Click here to make a donation through our gofundme account!




Meet Our Horse of the Month for August!

Currently up for Adoption for Benefactor & Caretaker!

Meet Yama, a beautiful 24 year old Bay Arab/Welsh cross mare, who has been a part of the UpReach family since 2012 after being donated to the program by Amanda Hanson. Before coming to UpReach, Yama was an experienced show pony. Her narrow build is great for our riders who are continuing to work on balance and for those who have difficulty straddling the wider UpReach horses. To learn more about Yama click here!
