The Southern Vermont Therapeutic Riding Center’s mission is to enrich, educate, and expand the lives of individuals with special needs through equine assisted activities & therapies (EAAT). EAAT involves trained volunteers assisting PATH certified instructor, and horse partners to provide a safe, beneficial, and fun experience for our participants. The intent and goal is for the participant to improve coordination, balance, cognitive, emotional, behavioral and/or physical skills, while progressing in equestrian skills. This program includes both mounted and unmounted activities with the horse for individuals age 3 and older. SVTRC offers EAAT to youth and adults with varying special needs including, but not limited to: autism, MS, ADD/ADHD, spinal cord injuries, blindness, developmental delays, apraxia/dyspraxia, cerebral palsy, anxiety, and more. SVTRC is a proud PATH International Member Center. For more information about SVTRC visit our website: www.sovtrc.org.
