Programs: Therapeutic Riding & Activities
Horses & Veterans in Harmony - an experiential learning program for military veterans with PTSD & TBI.

Mission:
Harmony Farms was created for the sole purpose of providing safe therapeutic equine activities to disabled individuals. Therapeutic riding has been recognized for more than fifty years as being of significant physical & emotional benefit. The horse provides movement, warmth, stimulation & motivation to the rider, helping them to reach a higher potential and to build confidence & self-esteem.
This development in an individual helps with social interaction and enhances their integration into the general community. We handle physical, mental & emotional disabilities.
We are members of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International, (PATH Intl). There are 800 member centers around the world.
PATH acts as an advisory & regulatory organization, providing training, instructor certification, insurance and networking opportunities. Member centers must comply with their strict safety guidelines.
Results:
We service over 60 riders a week with a waiting list of 40! Our program works! The majority of our riders are referred to us by their physicians & therapists.
We have secured a donation of land to build a new, larger facility to help more individuals, expand our program and to never have a waiting list!
