THWM is in its 23nd year of service to the special-needs riding community. Over the course of past years, our program instructors have taught several thousand riders, utilized over 150 therapy horses and benefited from the assistance of nearly five thousand volunteers. We have mentored and assisted the certification of 8 PATH International (NARHA) and 4-H PEP (special needs) therapeutic horseback riding instructors, and 5 Grand Valley State University recreational therapy interns.
Please go to our Lessons Page for further information on upcoming programming, and how to schedule for multi-week sessions, one-time equine experiences, volunteering opportunities, etc.
Funding for these activities come from the many events and opportunities listed on both this page, Fundraisers and Coming Events pages. We encourage you to participate where you can, to help us continue our service to the community.
