MEETING NEEDS IN OUR COMMUNITY
At Therapeion, our focus is the healing nature therapeutic horsemanship. Safety is a very high priority at Therapeion and we abide by all PATH International safety and training standards. Our instructors are certified through PATH International, so you can be sure that you or your rider are receiving the best the industry has to offer.
We are the only one in our area to offer these therapeutic programs for persons with disabilities and other life challenges. We serve Tippecanoe and all surrounding counties. In 2022, we have 198 classes scheduled. We expect to serve almost 150 participants in 2022, and are focused on growing our organization so we can offer our programs to more people in the future.
The need for programs such as ours is great. We provide professionally developed services that are highly valued by our constituents, offering healing of the body and mind through equine-assisted programs and the interaction and connection with a horse. Learning to work with horses builds confidence and raises self-esteem, and encourages stretching and strengthening of underused and underdeveloped muscles. It also helps develop gross and fine motor skills, and improves self-awareness and range of motion.
