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.
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.
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.
