Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
HARTH (Healing And Recovery Through Horses) Foundation recognizes and values the healing relationship between people and animals. We, along with our therapy horses, volunteers, and community partners, strive to bring that healing to as many Central Texans as possible through a variety of equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) programs. Situated among the natural beauty of the Highland Lakes, HARTH's mission is to enhance the health of people and our community through relationships with horses. HARTH serves those with a variety of physical, emotional and mental challenges through our PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified therapeutic riding program, and through our equine assisted learning (EAL) programs. HARTH also offers healing programs for combat veterans and their families to improve mental health, well-being, and quality of life.
