Therapeutic

Equine Activities

As a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH)-certified program, WEST facilitates activities that occur on the ground and on horseback. The purpose of putting someone on a horse is oftentimes not to teach them riding skills, but to foster the growth of trust, communication, concentration, physical awareness, physical strength and balance, confidence, assertivness, and leadership. Ground exercises do the same things and also include relationship-building, teaching partnership, compassion, and empathy. 

Lessons are out-of-pocket, but WEST does have financial partners that can help with the expense, if needed. Some of those programs may also cover speech therapy with equine therapy. 

Conditions that WEST has worked with to date: 

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida

ODD, Anxiety, ADD/ADHD

Cancer recovery, Injury recovery

Genetic Disorders, Behaviorial Issues
