Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship
NARHA Premier Accredited Center
"MVTH is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering therapeutic riding to children and adults living with disabilities, to help them achieve greater physical strength and flexibility while working on communication skills and developing emotionally-rewarding bonds with horses.
It is our greatest wish at MVTH it give those with disabilities the chance to discover how equine assisted therapy can impact their lives.
The simple act of riding promotes exercise and strength. A horse's rhythm mimics our own, and his body heat helps limber up under used muscles and joints. Those who have difficulty communicating with others have no trouble bonding with a gentle horse.
Every rider has specific goals and strength so each individual has a riding program tailored to meet their needs.
Our facility included 12 acres of pasture for our horses, an outdoor riding arena and a 60 X 120 foot indoor arena. Our office area includes a kitchen, two bathrooms, conference/meeting room and a family room. From the family room you can watch lessons going on in the indoor arena.
Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship is a Premier Accredited Center under the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH). This accreditation program ensures that a facility meets or exceeds established industry standards and provides excellence in providing equine-assisted activities. "
