Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center is a PATH, Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International) Member Center.
The mission of Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center is to provide equine-assisted activities and therapies to individuals with physical, social, emotional and sensory disabilities.
Equine Therapy helps individuals improve their gross and fine motor skills, balance, posture and language abilities, thus providing whole-person therapy.
Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing therapeutic riding for the handicapped.
Since opening its doors it has grown from serving a small group of thirteen riders, to serving more than 100 students a week.
The therapeutic riding center is located on the grounds of a former polo horse farm in Mansfield, Ohio. The Raemelton facilities include an outdoor riding arena, an indoor riding arena with a heated viewing room, two barns and ample pasture space.
Raemelton began serving physically, mentally, and cognitively impaired Richland County adults and children in 1995. The organization started with a small group of 13 riders and 4 horses and has grown to more than 90 students per week, year round participating in our Equine Facilitated Therapy and Learning Programs. In 1999, Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center introduced the C.A.R.E. (Children At Risk Equestrian) program to help prevent behavioral problems in children by teaching them how to care for and ride horses.
Each of Raemelton's instructors holds a PATH-International certification. These qualifications make it possible for the organization to provide students with a safe and encouraging environment where they can make their equestrian dreams come true. As a 501 (c)(3), Raemelton is able to provide students with an opportunity to experience horses regardless of the student's ability to pay for these services. The organization relies heavily on grants, individuals, and corporate donations and fundraising efforts to provide services to the community.
Today, the organization offers therapeutic riding, therapeutic driving programs, and the CARE program.
