Equine-Assisted Therapy, Inc has but one purpose; that is to provide horsemanship experiences to persons with mental, physical, and psychological disabilities in order to enhance the quality and productivity of their lives.
In 2010 we purchased 15 acres on Highway 109 in Wildwood, MO. Our efforts over the past year have been to turn a former tree nursery into the future site of an indoor riding arena and education center where our students can ride in any weather.

Reviews for Equine-Assisted Therapy Inc
Can't say enough about this great organization. Our little girl has been doing equine therapy since she was 3 with EATS. At that point, she was unable to sit up, walk or talk. After a year with them, she was able to sit up. She was very unhappy about going and hated it at first, but the volunteers found ways (singing) to make her love it. Fast forward 7 years, and she is sitting up, walking and talking (which they said she never probably would)! We strongly believe it is due to the GREAT volunteers and therapy she receives weekly at this organization. The volunteers go above and beyond for her. Her therapists are incredible at inspiring her to do the extra. They make it fun instead of work. She is so confident on the horse and is able to participate in ways nobody thought possible. She looks forward to Tuesday nights instead of dreading another therapy session. We LOVE the staff and the other children who attend. It is also wonderful to be able to sit with other parents of special needs children for an hour and be able to "relax" because you know your child is in good hands.
