Prospective Rider Information Tours Offered at HETRA Year Round
Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA) (www.HETRA.org) offers Equine Assisted Activities for adults and children with disabilities. Equine-assisted activity contributes to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs.
Prospective Rider Information Tours are now being held twice monthly for families and individuals interested in learning more. Led by either the Executive Director or Program Manager – both of whom are therapists – families gain crucial insight through one to one dialogue with these experts.
“Our families have the ability to ask specific questions, observe sessions, and witness first-hand the benefits of equine therapy. Our small, concentrated groups are designed to be rich in dialogue and inclusive, allowing attendees the ability to visualize themselves in our program and become comfortable with our processes, all without committing to the program. Once they decide HETRA is a fit, we assist with the process of becoming a participant,” explains Edye Godden, Occupational Therapists and Executive Director of HETRA. “No matter their ability to pay, HETRA never turns anyone away. We are a family, and our objective is to bring a personal touch to those who are at the initial stage of discovery and assist them through the process.”
Individuals and families interested in registering or learning more about Prospective Rider Information Tours can register on HETRA’s event calendar at www.HETRA.org, and also through HETRA’s Facebook Event page.
