PATH Riding To The Top

Helping people with disabilities reach their highest potential through the healing power of horses.

If our volunteers are the heart of RTT, then the horses are the soul of RTT. With our crew of four legged partners we are able to serve over 100 clients each session. Our horses are chosen for their temperaments, sizes and skills. Above all they have to love people and be very good at their work. Each member of our herd brings a special personality to their work and we do our best to match our clients and horses to make winning teams.
