PATH Accreditation

It takes more than horses and volunteers to put therapeutic horsemanship to work for special needs riders. It takes trained horses and educated volunteers, plus highly-qualified and credentialled instructors, all working together in a safe, helpful environment.


That’s why Horses with Heart is proud to be the only riding center in Northern Arizona to earn the coveted designation “Premier Accredited Center” by PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship).

As the global authority in inspecting and designating riding centers for therapeutic horsemanship, PATH International holds all its members to the highest standards.


When you ride at, volunteer with or donate to HwH, you know that your time, effort and money are being put to the best possible use.
