The Kearney Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program (KTHRP) is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering emotional, physical and social well-being through horseback riding.
Therapeutic horseback riding has long been recognized as an effective
treatment for a wide variety of physical and mental conditions. Research
shows that almost all who participate in therapeutic riding experience
physical, emotional and mental rewards. The Kearney Therapeutic Horseback
Riding Program is designed to meet the needs of individuals of all ages and
disabilities in our community.
Since 2010, the Kearney Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program has served the
local community as an independent, service organization. The program operates
during the warm weather months and serves a wide range of children and adults
with disabilities. The program is lead by two certified instructors with over
25 years of combined experience. Instructors are certified in either NARHA
(North American Riding for the Handicapped Association), CHA (Certified
Horsemanship Association) or both.
In addition to specializing in therapeutic riding for individuals seeking specific physical, social and emotional gains, KTHRP also offers general horseback riding lessons to all individuals seeking the benefits and enjoyment available through horseback riding.
