Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Boots to Grasses Therapeutic Horsemanship Program is a 501c-3 organization serving our Erie County participants in Berlin Heights, Ohio. Therapeutic horsemanship has provided social, educational, and recreational opportunities to individuals facing challenges for more than a century. By utilizing the special bond between humans and horses, Therapeutic Horsemanship can benefit participants of all ability levels. Boots to Grasses encourages participation of any person - regardless of age or challenge being faced. The discipline of Therapeutic Horsemanship encompasses not simply riding horses but also working to form a bond with the horse on the ground. Classes are taught in a private or group format by a PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified instructor with a Bachelor’s of Science in Equine Studies and Therapeutic Horsemanship from Lake Erie College - in conjunction with trained volunteers.
