The mission statement of the 50-year-old Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International or PATH, which certifies Seaside 4 Therapeutic Riding, is to continue helping “more than 62,000 children and adults each year . . . with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges find strength and independence through the power of the horse,” and our Pratt Equestrian volunteers with Seaside are an important part of that effort. Team members receive training and volunteer two Saturday mornings per semester.
