For over 30 years, Bakas Horses for Handicapped in north Tampa has been a place where people with disabilities can feel happy, safe and encouraged through therapeutic horseback riding programs.
Bakas offers recreational riding, lessons, challenge shows and summer camps for children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities. The nonprofit also provides networking, support and social group settings to further improve the quality of life for riders and their families.
Give Day funds will go directly to horses and riders – from caring for horses’ medical needs to buying special equipment for riders and providing scholarships for riders in need.
