Welcome to HALTER!

  • HALTER provides services to children who have challenges each week of service and to over 300 children in the region, and some from across the state, each year

  • HALTER provides services to children who have physical, cognitive, emotional/behavioral conditions; most of our children have more than one medical/cognitive/emotional condition

  • Most of our children receive special education

  • EVERY child who participates at HALTER depends on the generosity of our donors because the fees that are charged do not cover the cost of providing the services

  • All service providers are certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International and/or the American Hippotherapy Association

  • Three volunteers are needed for EACH participant, on average

  • HALTER maintains 12 horses/ponies

  • All horses/ponies go through specialized assessment and training

  • Many horses are on long-term “free-leases”

  • HALTER was established in 1987!
