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

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

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.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Ohio University Southern Ohio Horse Park Center for Therapeutic Riding offers unique, planned equine assisted opportunities for those with challenges. Guided interactions with equines can enhance and increase self-confidence, self-esteem, verbal skills, physical abilities, encourage healthy social skills and overall improve self image. Our second mission is to provide learning opportunities in this profession to our equine studies students to ensure an increase in academically advanced potential employees for active therapeutic riding centers across the United States.
