Heartland Horses Equine Activities & Learning was founded in 1998 on the belief that riding horses in a safe yet challenging environment can significantly improve the lives of individuals who are physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged.
We believe that experiencing and riding horses in a safe, yet challenging environment can significantly improve the lives of individuals who are physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged.
To significantly improve the lives of individuals who are physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged.
Recently our certifying body, Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, Inc., has done a massive study on terminology throughout the horse world to endeavor to unify the words we use in the industry to optimally describe what the provider should be calling the services they will render as well as describe what the consumer can expect to gain from those services. Equine Assisted Learning (now being referred to as Equine Assisted Services) has been around for a long time and there are SO many offerings out there that a standardization of terms is necessary so that folks know what they can really expect to get out of a therapy program.
At HHEAL, Heartland Horses Equine Activities and Learning, we aim to give our riders a broad selection of services so that we can maximize the effect in our community. We strive to provide cost-free services of many sorts: for those who may be disabled in various ways, for those who may be seeking physical therapy, or for those simply seeking to gain assisted learning in various areas. Presently, we do not have a certified therapist, whether an occupational, a physical, or a psycho-therapist, on site, but we do provide assisted learning as well as adaptive riding. We hope to draw some certified therapists into our HHEAL family in the future so that we can broaden our services to our community.
Following are some of the applicable definitions for the terminology that is being promoted with the intent of allowing for a fuller understanding of what equine services are provided at HHEAL:
