NORTHERN VIRGINIA THERAPEUTIC RIDING PROGRAM

NVTRP is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides equine-assisted activities for children and adults with disabilities, youth-at-risk, recovering military service personnel, and their families in an inclusive, community setting.

Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic riding teaches individuals who live with disabilities how to ride a horse. Benefits include increased strength, improved balance and coordination, and improved self-confidence.

Hippotherapy

In hippotherapy, a physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech/language pathologist uses the movement of the horse as a treatment strategy to achieve functional goals for people who live with disabilities or impairments.

Community Partnerships

Working in partnership with area nonprofits that also serve key constituents, NVTRP provides riding and horsemanship lessons to groups in need of additional services, such as youth-at-risk and recovering military service personnel.
