Rainier Therapeutic Riding provides therapeutic horsemanship services to veterans of all ages, active-duty service members and their families seeking to improve their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Currently we serve over 70 warriors each week with our herd of 11 specially trained equine therapists, 5 instructors certified through PATH Int. and over 75 active volunteers.
Partnering directly with medical teams at Joint Base Lewis McChord, the Veterans Administration and private referrals we help our heroes struggling to cope with PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries, combat injuries, mental health challenges and other visible and invisible wounds of war.
Our riders often come to us struggling with thoughts of suicide, have pulled away from family and friends and are struggling to cope with their changed reality.
Our horses, and highly trained teams of staff and volunteers help these riders learn life-skills and healing through horsemanship. These simple, yet profound lessons help guide broken souls back to a passion for life, trust and the relationships that will sustain them throughout the future.
Please explore our site, and consider donating to support our warriors continued healing.
Rainier Therapeutic Riding receives no government funding for these programs and relies entirely on the support of our communities to fund these life-changing programs.
