From the Ground Up Therapeutic Horsemanship, Inc. (FTGU) offers Equine Assisted Activities/Therapy to persons of all abilities, life challenges and stages. The intuitive and accepting nature of the horse, as well as its movement, motivates participants to achieve physical, emotional, social and educational goals. The horses’ size instills confidence, mutual respect and trust in all who partner with them on the ground or in the saddle. It is our mission to facilitate all that is possible through this partnership.
From The Ground Up Therapeutic Horsemanship, Inc. offers programs in Groundwork, Therapeutic Riding, Common Ground Natural Horsemanship, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Equine Assisted Learning, Special Olympics, Equine Services for Heroes (military & veterans), Service Learning for volunteers and traditional riding lessons. Each participant receives an initial assesment and if FTGU determines that we can accommodate the person, a plan is implemented in conjunction with the client, family, healthcare providers, teachers and other involved caregivers. Short and long term goals are developed with objectives and valued outcomes. Participants are evaluated periodically. Sessions are available for individuals, families, schools and other groups. FTGU is an inclusive organization and a 501c3 non-profit organization that operates on public support from the community.
