Mission
Summit Equestrian Center exists to improve the lives of children and adults of ALL abilities through the interaction with horses. It is the vision of Summit Equestrian Center to provide the highest quality therapeutic horseback riding and related activities to all those who can benefit.
Program Description
Therapeutic riding provides benefits in the areas of therapy, education, sport, recreational and leisure. Children and adults with physical, emotional cognitive and social challenges are able to achieve goals and conquer skills.

Interaction with horses can provide an opportunity to set and achieve goals, make friends and excel. The horses give their legs, hearts & hope to the riders and lift them to new challenges. Learn more about equine assisted activities at www.PATHINTL.org or by coming for an introduction to our program.

Here at Summit we have the flexibility to adapt our available programs to best match our riders' needs. Our therapeutic riding lessons are taught by PATH International certified therapeutic riding instructors with experience serving a wide variety of individuals. We are able to teach responsibility and social interaction, as well as skills like sequence memory and direction following, color, letter, and work recognition in a fun and motivating environment.

We provide Adaptive Riding, Hippotherapy (facilitated by a team of Physical Therapists), Equine Assisted Learning (life skills), & Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (facilitated by a licensed councilor & horse specialist).   We provide one-on-one sessions, family groups, sibling groups, and team building opportunities.
