Therapeutic horseback riding began in Europe over 50 years ago. It grew from a spark of intuitive wisdom in a few dedicated equestrians, into an established treatment method, now widely recognized by the medical, psychiatric, and social service professions worldwide. In the United States, quality of programming and accreditation for over 400 centers is monitored by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA), a non-profit service organization dedicated to promoting horseback riding for the handicapped.North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA
