Abstract

Healing Strides of VA (HSVA) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization established in 1991. We are located on 22 acres with 2 large pastures, 5 paddocks, a round pen, a large enclosed arena, and an outdoor arena. We have a professional staff, certified instructors, trained volunteers, and a herd of 20+ horses.

HSVA is the only Premier Accredited Center (PAC) with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Riding Int’l (PATH) in the Roanoke Valley.

We are an Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy Program (EAAT) which includes Therapeutic Riding, Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy EAP, Hippotherapy, and several other programs related to equine therapies. Healing Strides of VA chooses to use the EAGALA Model as our primary model for EAP and EAL.
