Since 1969, PATH has provided Equine Assisted Activity and Therapy (EAAT) programs in the United States and Canada through its network of nearly eight hundred member centers. Each year, more than 42,000 individuals with special needs benefit from activities which include therapeutic riding, hippotherapy, equine facilitated psychotherapy, driving, interactive vaulting, and competition.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, PATH's mission is to "change and enrich lives by promoting excellence in equine assisted activities." To accomplish this mission, PATH fosters safe, professional, ethical and therapeutic equine activities through education, communication, research and standards. The association assures it standards are met through an accreditation process for centers and a certification process for instructors.
