Nursing services:

Wings of Eagles Ranch is situated on 78 acres of beautiful countryside in Cabarrus County. Wings of Eagles Ranch is a place where symbols of limitations transform into limitless possibilities. Where one develops self-esteem and muscle tone. WoE is a family owned and operated non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization which specializes in a practice known as therapeutic horseback riding. Our therapeutic horses serve as unique vehicles for exercising one’s body and mind. Horseback riding provides physical, mental and emotional rewards. The horse’s gentle rhythmic movement helps increase the balance, muscle control and strength of riders with impaired mobility. Riding motivates children and adults with learning challenges to increase their levels of concentration, patience and discipline. A relationship forms between horse and rider allowing riders to overcome fears and develop trust in the therapeutic team and themselves. We are a North American Riders for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) Center and we adhere to their standards for safety and operations. We are in our 9th year of serving the special needs community in Cabarrus County and the surrounding areas. Over 100 riders have consistently taken part in our program since it began. In addition, approximately one hundred (100) children with special needs have had mini-riding experiences at the Ranch through field trips from area schools. Nurses are needed to be on hand to assist with any medical emergency or basic scrapes, bruises etc that might happen during summer camp.
