Equine assisted therapy is helpful in improving balance and strengthening muscles. The action of the horse's back simulates the action of walking in the rider's pelvis. Each individual is evaluated prior to being accepted into Heartland's program. Volunteers assist in all sessions as side-walkers, assuring the safety of the rider. Heartland serves people with the following disabilities: orthopedic, neuromuscular, blindness, emotional disturbances, Down Syndrome, autism, and mental retardation. Heartland Therapeutic Riding, Inc. began in 1978. We are a NARHA Premier Center. All instructors are NARHA Certified, all health professionals are licensed and NARHA AHA Registered.

Reviews for Heartland Therapeutic Riding, Inc.
Heartland was great at enabling my son (now 8) to ride horses. This has led to increased confidence as well as improved strength. It is great to see him be so proud of himself!
