"Your program is AWESOME! It has given both my boys, but especially Sam, a huge sense of confidence and accomplishment in addition to all the core "therapy" skills he works on during each riding session; and to boot he is learning passion & compassion for these amazing horses. It is every therapy, play, and class rolled into one and we are VERY SORRY to be leaving - we will miss you all!"

Therapeutic equine riding can help build social skills, communication and language skills, improve cognition, and help remodel neural pathways in the brain.
Riders quickly bond with the horses, which allows them to feel safe, heard and wanted, and creates a positive environment that fosters emotional growth. Interacting with horses helps build confidence, self-regulation skills, trust, and creates a sense of accomplishment.
For riders that are physically challenged, equine therapy can provide highly effective therapy.
Studies have shown that equine-assisted activities and therapies can improve gross motor function, spasticity, muscle symmetry, core strength, posture, balance and gait in individuals with varying disabilities.
"PSEAT provides a beacon of safety for people in need in a world full of chaos. This organization is welcoming, encouraging, kind, and flexible while providing a place to feel connected. The program reminds you to slow down, breath, and focus on what is directly in front of you, and in this day and age that’s a rare and cherished gift. Being able to witness the relationships the kids develop with their horse, other kids, the volunteers, and with themselves is inspiring. PSEAT is a lighthouse helping guide those most vulnerable back home to themselves.
