Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center strives to enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities through participation in equine assisted activities. Rainbow hold specific PTSD programs every Thursday and AFF, working with Azalea Charities, seeks to raise funds to sponsor these.
Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center is a place where individuals with special challenges come together, and where victories — some dramatic, some modest, but all significant — are joyously celebrated.
Established in 1985, Rainbow is a non-profit organization which provides therapeutic equestrian activities to individuals with physical, educational, emotional, intellectual and other challenges in Prince William County and surrounding Northern Virginia areas. Clients benefit from their involvement by developing self-esteem and self-confidence while receiving therapy through an equestrian activity to accommodate their specific condition.
Under the guidance of registered therapists and certified riding instructors, therapeutic riding helps individuals experience physical and emotional rewards. In addition to the staff, a very dedicated group of volunteers and specially selected horses complete the team to meet the needs of this exceptional group of people.
Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center operates under the guidelines of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH). All instructors are PATH certified.
