IMPACT


Vermont Horse-Assisted Therapy, Inc. (VHAT) is a Vermont-registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that has operated since 2008. Our mission is to provide safe, effective and fun therapeutic riding experiences to children and adults with physical, neurological, cognitive, emotional, or economic challenges. We also offer the only group program of its kind in Vermont for children on the autism spectrum.

DONATE


At VHAT, we receive no funding from governmental or other agencies. One hundred percent of our funding comes from the community, some in the form of grants from foundations, but mostly from our friends and neighbors. You can help to support VHAT and its programs.

THERAPEUTIC RIDING


“The horse/human relationship builds independence, trust, cooperation, patience, empathy for others, and hope − not only for the participants but for their families and caregivers. For people, especially children facing often insurmountable challenges, horses give them the rare chance to succeed.”
– The Equus Foundation
