Albany Therapeutic Riding Center is seeking interns, especially those who are interested in becoming certified through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH, Intl.)! We have collaborated with a variety of individuals in the past, from high school students exploring a career in therapeutic horsemanship to working adults pursuing certification. Anyone in need of training hours is welcome to participate in our program!

Our internship will explore the daily operations of a Therapeutic Riding Center, lesson planning, and working directly with horses and students. Our interns will be supervised by our instructor, Taylor Huntley, who is certified by both the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) and the Council for Education and Certification in Therapeutic Horsemanship (CECTH). In addition, our facility is certified through PATH, Int.

Prospective interns will go through an one site interview process. Once hired, a work schedule will be created with our instructor, Ms. Huntley.

Mission Statement

Albany Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. (ATRC, Inc.) utilizes equine-assisted therapy to support the well-being of individuals of all ages and ability levels. Through therapeutic horsemanship and therapeutic riding, ATRC, Inc. strives to encourage the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of its students.

Description

Established in 1981 by Christine "Chris" Lehman, ATRC, Inc. was the first organization of its kind in the local area. For over 35 years Ms. Lehman improved the lives of many as the Center's PATH, Intl. Certified Riding Instructor. Sadly, she passed away in January 2017 after a life dedicated to service. Carrying on her legacy, Taylor Huntley joined ATRC, Inc. in July 2018 and has revitalized the program. Ms. Huntley, who is certified both by PATH, Intl. and CECTH, continues to hone her skills with ongoing education. While Ms. Huntley works to guide learning during lessons, volunteers ensure the safety of the student.
