Therapeutic Riding of Tucson Renews PATH Intl. Premier Accreditation
Accreditation certifies that Therapeutic Riding of Tucson excels in providing a quality experience to their clients
TUCSON, Ariz., December 10, 2018 (Newswire.com) - After countless hours of work, Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT) has received its accreditation from the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.). Every five years, therapeutic riding centers sanctioned by PATH Intl. are required to renew their accreditation.
PATH Intl. accreditation establishes TROT as an industry-leading expert in the areas of safety and health standards. This certification places TROT at the top of their industry in the areas of center administration, facility safety, equine welfare and activities. The review and evaluation process focuses on these issues, along with examples of actual classes offered by the center. In TROT’s case, this included therapeutic riding, equine-facilitated psychotherapy (EFP) and interactive vaulting. Using stringent standards and guidelines, TROT was found to possess a strong equine background as well as an understanding of various disabilities.
“Everyone at TROT has been working very hard to accomplish this achievement. The hard work is all worth it when we can help our clients through therapeutic riding. The impossible is often achieved at TROT, which gives us great pride,” said Laurel Brown, TROT board member.
TROT staff and volunteers utilize therapeutic riding for children and adults with disabilities and special needs. These therapies help to improve balance, coordination, motor skills and even speech skills. TROT was also one of the first PATH Intl. centers in the country to offer a program specifically designed for veterans with disabilities and who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
