Equine-assisted services 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 services (EAS) include: Therapeutic Riding (TR), Equine-Assisted Therapy (EAT), 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 six to 50+ with the majority (90%) under the age of 18. Our riders are challenged by a variety of diagnoses including ADHD, developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, post-traumatic stress, and various psychosocial challenges.
