Abstract

EquiCenter, at the William & Mildred Levine Ranch, is a premier accredited member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH), and a 501(c)(3) non-profit facility serving those with disabilities, veterans and at-risk youth. Equine-related programs currently offered include therapeutic horseback riding, horsemanship, and Heroes for Horses, a program that uses a variety of equine-related therapies to help war veterans and their families. Our riding instructors are internationally-certified and our volunteers and horses have been carefully selected and trained for their vital roles.  

EquiCenter continues to expand its range of therapeutic activities to fit the equally diverse needs of our community. Other programs include therapeutic horticulture on our 3-acre organic farm, canine-assisted activities, adaptive yoga, and farm-to-table culinary classes. Our purpose through all our programs is to foster the personal growth and achievement of all we serve.
