All of our programs are based on the belief that being at a barn helps children and adults in many ways. But, sometimes the language used to describe the programs we offer can be confusing. Our accrediting organization, The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH), has recently developed some common terminology that they want all accredited organizations to use so that there is consistency across organizations. Equine Assisted Services is an umbrella term that covers Therapy, Learning, and Horsemanship in a barn environment.

Equine Assisted Horsemanship provided in therapeutic horseback riding lessons taught by certified riding instructors. These are weekly horseback riding lessons, which may also include ground work with horses.
Equine Assisted Therapy is provided by occupational therapists and does not include riding the horses. However, it can include unmounted work with horses or other small animals and other activities in the barn environment.
