Heads Up Therapy On Horseback


Sponsored by Valencia Acura

During the week of November 26, 2007, we were happy to welcome back Michael Holt – president of Heads Up Therapy On Horseback. Heads Up was featured on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight Show, hosted by Janice Murray and sponsored by Valencia Acura .

Heads up is an equestrian program located in Saugus founded in 1986 by Nancy Pitchford. The staff is dedicated to providing quality therapy to disabled children and adults with physical, mental and emotional disabilities. Trained instructors and therapists give private and group lessons that challenge participants by placing them on horseback regardless of their limitations. In addition to riding, participants also learn basic horsemanship skills such as grooming and feeding.

Their facility on Bouquet Canyon sustained heavy damage from the Buckweed fire. Flames quickly consumed a mobile home belonging to Heads Up Director Jim Tindell and other structures located on the property. While evacuating horses from Heads Up, Jim received 2nd and 3rd degree burns – which sent him to the Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks – where he is currently receiving treatment for his burns.

Heads Up has plans to resume their therapeutic riding program at a ranch located in Sand Canyon beginning in January 2008.

KHTS wants to thank Michael Holt for spending time with us at our Resource Station.
