Paradise Equestrian Therapy Center is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) charitable organization providing equine-assisted activities and therapy for individuals with special needs. Paradise Equestrian Therapy Center was founded in 1998 near Mattoon, Illinois. In 2007, the program moved to our current location formerly known as Rock-N-A-Ranch. At that time a new board of directors was appointed and have worked diligently to expand our program to help any and all individuals that would benefit from equine assisted activities and therapy.
