About PATH International
The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) promotes safety and optimal outcomes in equine-assisted activities and therapies for individuals with special needs. PATH Intl. is the global authority, resource and advocate for equine-assisted activities and therapies and the equines in this work that inspires and enriches the human spirit.
PATH Intl. was formed in 1969 as the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association to promote equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) for individuals with special needs. Since that time, the association’s work to credential professionals and accredit programs has expanded, as have the categories of individuals served through EAAT. Through the work of 881 member centers and more than 5,000 instructors credentialed through PATH Intl., 66,179 children and adults, including more than 6,200 veterans, find a sense of health, wellness, independence and fun through EAAT. Member centers range from small, one-person programs to large operations with several credentialed instructors and licensed therapists. In addition to horseback riding, a center may offer any number of EAAT such as hippotherapy, carriage driving, interactive vaulting, trail riding, competition and more. Through a wide variety of educational resources, the association helps individuals start and maintain successful programs. There are 62,469 volunteers, 5,011 instructors, 7,800 equines and thousands of contributors from all over the world making a difference in people’s lives.
