About Us


Hi y'all! I'm Caitlin Klaerner. Wife, Mama, Nurse, Horsewoman and
Founder of Stride & Strength Therapeutic Horseback Riding.

Two years after graduating from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree, I found myself constrained within hospital walls and missing the fresh air and tranquility that horses had brought me throughout my childhood.


I wondered how I could best serve my community and spread my medical knowledge while combining my love for the equine world. And now today, I am so excited to share this dream which has become a reality through Stride & Strength. 

I am a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor with three years of experience in the equine assisted therapy realm.

My mission is to assist every rider in gaining life skills and independence with the help and loving touch of my equine teammates.
