Abstract

Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center has been providing services since 1999 and is devoted to serving children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted therapies.

FHTRC is a proud member of PATH International, the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship. This means that we follow a set of guidelines that have been put into place by some of the best equine therapists in the industry. Here at Freedom Hooves we focus on therapeutic riding sessions. Rather than just being ponied around, those who take part in this type of therapy see a number of benefits in many areas. These include psychological, physical, social, and educational gains.
