At the Savage Riding Academy, we strive to be more than just a traditional horseback riding barn.  Our mission is to be a community resource which offers a wide variety of programs that promote education, health, and well-being for the citizens of Goshen and Elkhart County.  We want our services to be accessible to all of our families, which is why we are in the process of developing a nonprofit scholarship program to increase accessibility.  Stay tuned as programs continue to develop and roll out throughout 2018 and 2019, and get in touch if you would like to partner with us to make these services a reality!
