The mission of GHETC is to provide children, youth and adults with varying conditions quality programs designed to enhance their independence, personal potential and quality of life. Using the equine as its tool and its 20-acre facility as its classroom, Good Hope is committed to annually expanding program services to meet the educational, recreational and rehabilitative needs of South Florida's culturally diverse, disabled populations.
Good Hope Equestrian Training Center (GHETC) was founded in 1999 with a vision of providing special needs populations with recreational, rehabilitative, educational and community-based training programs that offer opportunities to increase their independence and quality of life. Since its inception, GHETC provided evidence-based equine assisted programming to more than 2,800 children, youth and adults with varying disabilities and those in convalescence from various pathologies. GHETC offers a broad array of specialized programs that today serve approximately 400 clients annually. The goal of each program is to build upon the unique gifts of each consumer, enabling them to successfully improve their body, mind and spirit through the healing powers of the horse.
Our specialized equine assisted activities are developed with a person-centered focus for individuals ages 4 - 65 with various intellectual, physical, sensory and emotional disabilities, including Amputees, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Specific Learning Disabilities (ADD/ADHD), Processing Disorders, Spinal Cerebellum Dysfunction, PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, Spinal Cord Injuries, and Traumatic Brain Injury. Good Hope strives to ensure a positive and therapeutic learning environment tailored to each individual’s wants and needs.
