Mission Statement

Heartland Therapeutic Riding, Inc. accepts participants who exhibit physical or cognitive disabilities. Heartland provides equine-assisted therapy through the movement of and human interaction with the horse. Early intervention hippotherapy is provided for special needs children by a physical or an occupational therapist. Therapeutic sports riding is available for children and adults with disabilities.

Description

Heartland's equine therapy classes are taught by Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International - certified instructors. Both programs utilize motor planning, cognitive planning, and sensory integration in the design and implementation of each class session. Heartland employs an occupational therapist and a physical therapist certified by the American Hippotherapy Association to conduct our intervention therapy program. Certified therapeutic riding instructors conduct the sports riding program. We operate with the help of more than 120 volunteers each week. We maintain a herd of approximately 20 well-trained, sound and patient horses with extensive riding or show experience.
