Equine Rehabilitation Central Texas is 501(3)c non-profit
organization formed in June of 2012 to rehabilitate neglected horses.
Many healthy horses later, Hearts Therapeutic Riding emerged
as these rehabilitated horses gained new purpose in serving children and adults with special needs and individuals recovering from trauma.
Hearts Therapeutic Riding provides therapeutic sessions and riding lessons weekly with the effort of several certified PATH instructors and volunteers.
In addition, we have provided horseback riding for Veterans' Night Out and conducted camps during summer and school holidays. We also offer frequent volunteer training for working with horses and students.

ERCT Founder, Executive Director & Certified PATH Instructor, Lisa Rivers, with Jake.
As a non-profit organization, we depend on volunteers to help care for horses, maintain the property and assist children with riding. We could not do it without our volunteers.
New volunteer orientations are held every month. Email us for our next volunteer orientation: email@example.com
Thank you Parelli Foundation!
The Parelli Foundation awarded a grant for $1800 for Parelli training for the staff in 2020! The purpose for this training is to improve our relationships with our therapeutic riding horses, treat them with respect and improve our communication with our wonderful sentient horses. We need our horses to have a "want to" attitude instead of an "have to" attitude so that they will continue to provide the therapeutic service to our riders.

What does this mean? - Accreditation is a voluntary process that recognizes PATH Intl. Centers that have met established industry standards. The accreditation process is a peer review system in which trained volunteers visit and review centers. A center that meets the accreditation requirements based on the administrative, facility, program and applicable special interest standards becomes a PATH Intl. This status means we now have access to Wounded Warrior Scholarships. Any veteran interested in therapeutic horseback riding needs to contact the WWP Resource Center at 888-997-2586 or the local WWP, Inc. office. Ask for the PATH Intl. Program Referral for Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies and request Hearts Therapeutic Riding in Leander. We would love to have you ride with us!
