Our Mission Statement

 Welcome to EquiVenture Therapeutic Riding

EquiVenture focuses on improving each of our riders' potential through their equine experience. We help them meet the physical, mental, behavioral and social challenges of their special needs. "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." - Winston Churchill. EquiVenture provides the opportunity for special youth to take advantage of the extraordinary physical and psychological benefits of horseback riding. The rhythmic motion of the horse acts as a powerful tool to improve documented benefits of strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance. Therapeutic riding programs have been witness to autistic children uttering the name of their horse, wheelchair-bound individuals walking for the first time after a riding session, and thousands of children and adults who have a renewed enthusiasm for life after climbing aboard a horse.
Few things in life are more rewarding than the smile of pride and joy n the face of a client after a few minutes of riding in an atmosphere of love and support. 

EquiVenture Therapeutic Riding Inc. (EVTR) is a unique program in Howard County that provides therapeutic horseback riding to special needs children.

We at EquiVenture are very proud of our program. We are all dedicated volunteers who work very hard to provide a quality therapeutic riding program at no cost to our riders.
Our Web Site has undergone a lot of changes to reflect that. Many new features are added and some of them are only just started and will change and refine as we are able to add info.

            About Us EquiVenture Therapeutic Riding Inc. (EVTR) is a provincially incorporated, non-profit organization which offers disabled individuals in the Kokomo Indiana area the opportunity to enjoy the therapeutic and recreational benefits of horseback riding. Two women, Lola Cooley and Bonnie Flynn originally started it in 1993. Since then, they have both moved away (with Bonnie moving back in 2001) and the program is run by a group of volunteers. All of us as volunteers are committed to continuing the program and helping it to grow and prosper. This program is one of the very few in the country that does not charge a fee for its services. EVTR is fully staffed by volunteers and depends entirely on donations to support the program.

            Mission  To provide a program of therapeutic horseback riding for persons with disabilities. To create a clearinghouse of information which may be of particular value and interest to disabled persons, their parents and private and public agencies and institutions with respect to the uses and benefits of therapeutic horseback riding.
