Athelas Therapeutic Riding, Inc.

 
Our mission statement is, the purpose of Athelas Therapeutic Riding Inc. is dedicated to enriching and improving the lives of individuals with disabilities through interaction with a therapeutic horse. With two Path certified instructors and the volunteers we provide important safety for our riders as well as allowing the instructor to focus directly on the rider and their needs. Because horse back riding gently and rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to the human gait of walking the riders with physical disabilities and injuries often show improvement in flexibility, balance, muscle strength and tone as the ride over time. Individuals with almost any cognitive, physical and or emotional special need can benefit from the caring, supportive, safe, relaxed and non judgment atmosphere that Athelas strives to create at our facility.

Because we are a not-for-profit organization we are always in need of funds.  The money goes to feeding, equipment and care of our 6 horses. We are also always looking for volunteers.
