Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
Our organization's goal is to provide high-quality equine-assisted activities to individuals with special needs in Lancaster County and beyond. To achieve this we will sustain and strengthen our core therapeutic riding program, and continue to offer and grow our equine assisted learning opportunities for our participants and community partners.
     
     In order to sustain our programs we plan to retain and invest in current staff as well as hire individuals for additional roles as our organizational needs increase. We are also continuously working to both maintain current sources of funding and expand our funding portfolio.
     
     We are a PATH Intl. center member. We have forged strong ties to our community through our programs as well as partnerships with other organizations. Our continued program growth and increase in participants are evidence of our accomplishments and heightened recognition in the community.

    Therapeutic Mounted Services
Not Checked:
    Therapeutic Driving Services
    Therapeutic Vaulting Services
    Therapeutic Unmounted Services
    Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy/Counseling (Mental Health)
    Equine-Assisted Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy/Speech-Language Pathology
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Academic Learning
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Personal and/or Professional Development


Overview of our programs involved with providing EAS to individuals with special needs:
     Our core program is therapeutic riding (TR). Instructors certified through PATH Intl. and/or CECTH teach riding skills to individuals with special needs in an adapted manner. Riders are typically scheduled for a weekly 45-minute lesson for the duration of a six-week session. We offer six lesson sessions throughout the year.
     
     Additionally, we offer Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and Equine-Assisted Activities (EAA) opportunities for individuals through unmounted lessons and through monthly horsemanship clinics. We also partner with community organizations to offer EAL/EAA opportunities for groups associated with our community partners.
     
     We also run special events including our annual Horse Show, which provides our riders with the opportunity to showcase the skills they have learned through our programs.


At a time when equestrian sports are under pressure to protect horses while making those sports more accessible, so too must all equine organizations ensure that horses are treated humanely when interacting with people with and without special needs. Our organization takes the following steps to ensure that horses are benefiting from their interactions with people:
     We ensure that all staff and volunteers are trained appropriately in interacting with equines and all instructors are certified by a recognized EAAT organization such as Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) and/or Council for Education and Certification in Therapeutic Horsemanship (CECTH).
     
     We utilize positive and recognized methods of training to ensure our horses are desensitized to and comfortable with things they may encounter in a therapeutic riding lesson. All equines are evaluated for their training, temperament, fitness, and overall health before they are accepted into our programs to determine if working in a therapeutic program would benefit them. Horses are then brought in on a trial basis and our staff work with them in "mock lessons" to simulate activities and situations they may encounter. If they are determined to be a good fit, they are then fully accepted and start working within our programs.
     
     Horses in our programs are continually assessed and records are kept of horse behavior during lessons and schooling to note any issues. Riders are matched with horses based on the needs of the rider and the personality of the horse so that both are mutually benefiting. If any horse would show signs of discomfort, whether physical or emotional, we would work with our staff and appropriate professionals to develop and implement a plan to address the noted concerns.
     
     We do not tolerate any abusive behavior toward our equines from anyone involved in our programs and would immediately discontinue any activity in which such actions occur, remove the responsible party from the situation, and determine further appropriate action. For example, if a volunteer displayed abusive behavior to one of our horses they would be immediately removed from the situation. The horse would be assessed for any needed care and the volunteer would be subject to termination from our programs.



Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     We offer opportunities through community partnerships to provide opportunities for groups to come learn about horses and our programs. This typically includes the group also volunteering for us in some way for a single period, typically for barn beautification, helping to set up for an event, or another special project.

Special Needs: Any difficulty or difficulties (such as a physical, emotional, behavioral, or cognitive disability or impairment) that require or benefit from instructors, specialists, counselors, trainers and/or facilitators who have certified training for their scope of practice applicable to the people participating in the programs and specific to the program offerings. The difficulty may not be limited to a health issue but may result from the interaction between the individual and the society in which he or she lives arising from an abusive or unhealthy environment or situation and/or a lack of resources, including economic resources, placing them at risk of a future with less than optimal outcomes.

At-Risk youth are likely to be involved in a number of risky behaviors, such as running away, skipping school, drinking underage, engaging in sexual behavior, displaying disruptive behavior, bullying/harassment, fighting, and committing acts of vandalism.
