Riding To The Top offers a variety of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT). For all of our programs, clients are assessed and goals are established to address the needs of each individual. Our team includes PATH Intl. Certified Instructors, specially trained volunteers and our herd of exceptional horses.
Specific Programs include:
- Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship where
goals are integrated with specific horsemanship and riding activities;
- School Based Programs for students receiving special education services where educational goals
are incorporated with the farm/riding experience;
- Equine Assisted Learning where the majority of the work is unmounted and focuses on development
of important life skills such as trust, respect, communication, etc.;
- Hippotherapy a specialized program utilizing equine movement to address functional limitations in
patients with neuromuscular dysfunction. At RTT, hippotherapy is provided by a physical therapist.
