HALTER FAST FACTS:
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!
