I'm reading about this ranch in California that provides outdoor rides in special designed carriages drafted by massive horses.

"Our Mission: Enriching the lives of people with disabilities and underserved youth by providing outdoor recreation, environmental education and open space access, using innovative wheelchair accessible horsedrawn carriages.

Access Adventure is a program of the Solano Land Trust, and also works with the Muir Heritage Land Trust in Contra Costa County.

Serving the people of the greater San Francisco Bay Area, the program operates on more than 16,000 acres of preserved open space lands. Solano Land Trust’s Rush Ranch, located near Suisun City on 2,070 acres, straddles the Suisun Marsh, and is the headquarters for Access Adventure.

The Muir Heritage Land Trust hosts Access Adventure as a user group on the spectacular properties they protect. Both land trusts have ample areas to explore with the horsedrawn carriages of Access Adventure.
We provide weekly events of recreational carriage driving, special events featuring historical horsefarming, youth programs and unique educational opportunities relating to preservation, ecology, wildlife habitat and rangeland management.

The programs of Access Adventure are provided to anyone living with a condition that affects their ability to get around. We use Thornlea Carriages built by Jerry and Barbara Garner in Wabash, Indiana. These uniquely designed vehicles offer a safe and comfortable ride, providing access to anywhere horses can go. The world becomes a bigger place, with the pleasure of being out in nature accessible to everyone.
