Why are we a Messenger?

Messengers are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations.

Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Riding To The Top Therapeutic Riding Center ("RTT") is a non profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities reach their highest potential through the healing power of horses.

Horse-related programs:
RTT serves over 200 clients each year, 62 percent of whom are children ranging in age from 3 to 17. These individuals have a wide range of disabilities that include but are not limited to: cerebral palsy, brain injury, autism, learning disabilities, multiple sclerosis, emotional disorders, Down syndrome, developmental delays, sensory integration dysfunction and ADD/ADHD. Clients are referred to RTT by doctors, therapists, social workers, teachers, guidance counselors, social service agencies, family members, and friends. Clients come to RTT as individuals, or as part of programming through their residential homes, local schools or nursing homes. RTT is a PATH Intl. Accredited Center for Therapeutic Riding and Hippotherapy. As Maine's only year-round PATH Intl. Accredited Center solely dedicated to serving people with disabilities, RTT has clients and volunteers who come from over 45 towns (six counties) in southern and mid-coast Maine, traveling at times more than an hour to receive services.
