Kent Association of Riding Therapy, Inc. (KART) was founded in 1984 to help children and adults with special needs enhance their social and developmental growth. KART uses a multi-faceted program involving therapeutic horseback riding, grooming and caring for the horse, and comprehensive classroom instruction.

KART is a Premier Accredited Center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH, Int.) and an Agency of the United Way of Kent County, MD.  We have specially trained, PATH certified instructors, who along with our wonderful volunteers and special horses, can change an individual’s life through an increase in self-esteem, confidence, coordination and balance, focus and physical improvements.
