This is an amazing organization that helps kids with physical and emotions challenges in ways traditional therapy can't. It's amazing to see and hear the parents talk about the progress their kids have achieved after finding ETC. If you have or know of a child that needs therapy this is the place they need to be.
My daughter has been receiving Hippotherapy with this organization for 11 years. I am also a therapist and know many families of children who are in the program. The results of this unique kind of therapy are amazing! And ETC has been unmatched in the services they provide. My daughter's increased strength, agility and physical skills including balance and stability are a result of being part of this program! My role is multi-faceted! I am a parent of a client, a professional therapist and.....because I believe in this program...a board member!
This nonprofit provides a unique approach to physical and mental therapy. With the utilization of horses, clients and patients receive the benefit of treatment in a manner that is engaging and noninvasive without the emotional anxiety that can be a part traditional treatment approaches.
I volunteer, work, and donate for ETC. I've seen miracles happening at this place!! By using the therapy horses as connectors emotionally and by their natural movements to improve therapies for clients, it helps vastly improve results. I've seen kids coming in from local homes who have been abused or in trouble to children with disabilities enjoy themselves all while improving whatever they need to emotionally and physically. I highly recommend anyone to get involved in any way whether volunteering, donating, connecting or having a family member becoming a client!! It's totally worth it!
