The WarHorses for Heroes riding instructors have decades of experience teaching horsemanship and horseback riding skills, however, we’d like to provide them with the certification to extend their experience to a therapeutic setting. PATH International is the nationally recognized authority in certification and training for instructors to learn to safely and effectively facilitate therapeutic riding and therapeutic equine-related activities. Currently, all WarHorses for Heroes activities have to be facilitated and monitored by a Veterans Affairs therapist, and the veterans’ interactions with the horses are limited mostly to groundwork. With PATH-certified instructors, the participating veterans have can expand their skills and activities much further.
