Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Hearts & Horses mission is to promote the physical, cognitive, emotional and social well-being of people with special needs through equine assisted activities and therapies.

Hearts & Horses is a well-respected PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center with an outstanding record serving those with physical, mental and emotional needs since 1997. From youth at risk, to individuals with Alzheimer's, to children with Autism, Hearts & Horses impacts every life we touch.

In all of our programs, the horse is viewed as a therapy partner, teaching our young riders valuable lessons in communication, teamwork, respect, trust, and independence. Our four-legged therapists act as gentle teachers in this "hands on," experiential learning environment, providing an abundance of love, respect, and patience to an often fragile and vulnerable population.

All of our instructors hold their PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor (CTRI) and most of them also hold their PATH Intl. Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL).

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