Abstract

Tomorrow's Equestrian Center is a non-profit, therapeutic riding program providing services to the North Central Florida area, including Marion County, Levy County, Citrus County, and Alachua County. The program will be offered at a nominal fee or free to those unable to pay. 

Tomorrow's Equestrian Center, Inc.’s Mission is to provide recreational and therapeutic riding to physically, mentally and emotionally disabled individuals. To promote community awareness of the advantage and benefits of therapeutic riding.

We provide therapeutic riding programs to disabled children and adults ages 5 years and up. Riding improves posture, mobility, flexibility, muscle tone, coordination, balance, communication skills and self-esteem. A certified and experienced instructor will conduct programs. All instructors are certified through the Professional Associaton of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) formerly known as the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA). This program is conducted and run by dedicated volunteers.
