Abstract

Therapeion was founded in 2007 to provide therapeutic riding services for persons with disabilities and youth facing difficult life challenges. Our pilot program was held in the summer of 2007 and from there we have grown to offering services March through October to approximately fifty riders per week.  Our mission is to facilitate the healing of body and spirit through the interaction between humans and horses.
Therapeion is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl) Premier Accredited Center.  Therapeion is the only PATH Int'l member center serving our area.  PATH Int'l membership is optional and as a member Therapeion abides by all PATH Int'l safety, accreditation, and training standards and guidelines.  
At Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center, our focus is the healing nature of the interaction between humans and horses. Safety is a very high priority at Therapeion and we abide by all PATH Int'l safety and training standards.  Our instructors are certified through PATH Intl so you can be sure that you or your rider are receiving the best the industry has to offer.
Therapeion provides equine assisted programs for persons with disabilities, children who have been victims of violence or abuse, veterans with disabilities,  and for youth learning life skills. 
Therapeion's purpose is to assist our participants in dealing with or overcoming their physical, emotional, behavioral, or cognitive issues and do it with an attitude of respect, compassion, concern, and love.
