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!
A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available so that you can help make a difference. Your donation will fund farrier visits, vet care, medicine, and feed. Click

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.
Horses & Heroes Program
Thanks to those that donated and sponsored our Halloween Bash, we have been able to build a beautiful shed row barn for our horses!
Thank you Parelli Foundation!
The Parelli Foundation awarded a grant for $2500 for Parelli training for the staff. This training has been going on all summer by instructor, Kerri April, 4 Star Parelli Professional. 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.
