Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Bridle Paths is an all-volunteer organization that offers meaningful paths to connection, in partnership with horses. Our mission is to offer strength, support, and healing to individuals and families through safe, effective, and high-quality equine-assisted activities and therapies.

We provide therapeutic horseback riding instruction, equine-assisted learning, and equine-assisted psychotherapy services to individuals and families faced with physical, cognitive, psychological, and emotional needs.

It is our vision to sustain an environment and an opportunity for our clients to connect, communicate, and trust, in partnership with horses.

Our work is guided by our values, which include:
Respect for the individual, both human and equine
Focus on abilities and possibilities, rather than on labels and diagnoses
Delivery of safe, ethical, and emotionally-attuned services


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT).

Our organization does not provide community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.
