FAQ

How can I enroll (or enroll my child) in the program?
The starting point is to call Diane Abitz at (715) 359-6046 or complete the contact form to get more information and provide the details necessary, including your phone number. An intake process is followed and application forms (which include a brief health history and physician’s approval) are required to be filled out. A date will be set up for a pre-class assessment for equine therapy.  Learn more about enrollment.

Is there a weight limit for riding?
We do have 1 larger draft  horse for riders over 200 lbs. Most of our horses do have a 200 lb. weight limit depending on their size.  This is in accordance with guidelines of PATH Intl., our parent organization.

Can I donate my horse to Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center?
For safety reasons, any horse that is a potential candidate for Equine Therapy has a 90 day trial period. Horses must be healthy, trained and calm around groups of people.  We are not a rescue. Other programs may be interested if we cannot accommodate your wishes.  You can find more information at donatemyhorse.com  They work with our parent organization, PATHIntl.org,  for finding possible matches.
