Abstract

Happy Trails Riding Academy is a PATH International premier accredited center which enriches the lives of children and adults with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities through equine facilitated therapy. Therapeutic horsemanship has been proven to provide a unique opportunity for self-improvement and independence in a positive learning environment, while offering a challenging alternative to traditional therapy.

Happy Trails Riding Academy assists riders with Cerebral Palsy, ADD, ADHD, head trauma, brain injury, sight and hearing impairments, developmental disablities, Autism, Down Syndrome, and more.
