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.

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 and shelter of horses.
