Abstract

Bridle Paths is a nonprofit organization that offers strength, support, and healing to individuals and families through safe, effective, and high-quality equine-assisted activities and therapies. We provide therapeutic horseback riding instruction, equine-assisted learning, and equine-assisted psychotherapy services to individuals and families faced with physical, cognitive, psychological, and emotional needs. The program serves those with a wide variety of challenges and diagnoses, including attention deficit disorder, cognitive impairments, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety and depression, genetic problems, seizure disorders, brain injuries, post traumatic stress, and trauma.
