One of the wonderful organizations we have in the Wenatchee area is the Alatheia Riding Center. Alatheia is a therapeutic riding center for those with special needs.  It was opened in 2011 and has been providing life-changing experiences for children with physical, emotional and/or mental challenges ever since.  

I encourage you to peruse their wonderful website.  Be sure not to miss the heartwarming rider stories . I have a friend whose grandson has Downs Syndrome and he loves his time at Alatheia each week.

I had tears in my eyes as I watched the video.  It is only 3 minutes long.  I hope you enjoy it too!

Hi Carol Williams - Horses are more sensitive and can pick up on our energy. They have a wonderful calming nature for those who really need it. I highly recommend their therapeutic medicine.

Hi Nina Hollander ,
I did not realize there were so many of these therapeutic riding facilities until I started doing a little research.  It's amazing.  I so admire these folks.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® ,
I've never been a horse person but they do seem to have some sort of magic in them.

I love programs that feature the opportunity for handicaped children and adults to participate in activities we wouldn't normally think of.  I'm glad someone did.

Hi Sharon Tara ,
Thank you for watching the video.  I just read in the paper yesterday that Aletheia is adding a program for military vets with PTSD.  How cool is that?
