(Handicapped Athletes Learning To Enjoy Riding)
H. A .L. T. E. R. is an affordable Therapeutic Horseback Riding program which has served disabled residents of Spartanburg (and surrounding counties) and students at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind since 1987.
Therapeutic Horseback Riding is now a growing therapeutic field in the United States, Canada and Europe. Recognized by the American Physical Therapy Organization and the American Occupational Therapy Organization, Therapeutic Horseback Riding has received national media attention. USA Today, People, CNN and CBS networks have recently done features on the topic.
H. A.L.T.E.R., a 501 (c)(3) organization, provides services with a dedicated corps of volunteers and public support. The Saturday morning (five week) sessions generally run from early Spring through late Fall each year (see schedule on their site).
