Abstract

Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center is a place where individuals with special challenges come together, and where victories — some dramatic, some modest, but all significant — are joyously celebrated.

Established in 1985, Rainbow is a non-profit organization that provides equine assisted therapy to individuals with physical, educational, emotional, intellectual disabilities and other challenges. Our clients develop physical strength and better mobility, self-esteem and self-confidence while receiving therapy through an equestrian activity that accommodates their specific needs.

Under the guidance of certified riding instructors, therapeutic riding helps individuals experience physical and emotional rewards. In addition to our staff, a very dedicated group of volunteers and specially selected horses help to meet the needs of this exceptional group of people.

Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center operates under the guidelines of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) and our instructors are all PATH certified.
