Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy use the horse’s dynamic movement to improve trunk mobility and strength which in turn, affects limb function. The horse provides a consistent and rhythmic movement pattern that facilitates the treatment goals, which are crucial to the student’s success. Current Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) include: Therapeutic Riding (TR), Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT), Interactive Vaulting (IV), Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy/Learning (EFP/L), and Equine Services for Heroes.
Each of our programs is taught by a PATH certified instructor. A potential rider is evaluated and placed in one of our programs based on the individual needs of the rider.
Our riders range in age from 3 to 50+ with the majority (85%) under the age of eighteen. Our riders are challenged by a variety of disabilities including ADHD, developmental delay, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, fetal alcohol affects and various psychosocial challenges.
