Rocky Mountain Riding Therapy (RMRT) is a 501(c)(3) equine assisted services center located in Boulder, CO.  We are proud to be a Premier Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) Intl. Member Center. We work with individuals of all ages with a variety of physical, cognitive and emotional challenges, providing therapy and recreational opportunities that involve interaction with our equine partners. 

The team at RMRT is comprised of compassionate and experienced  instructors, therapists, volunteers, and equine trainers. The therapists and instructors at RMRT have made significant contributions in the field of equine assisted therapies and activities. RMRT aims to continue as a leader and innovator in equine assisted therapies and activities.

Why Horses? They are thoughtful in their decision making and they give honest and immediate feedback. Experiencing and learning from herd dynamics allows us to shift and make small changes in our actions and behaviors, cultivating our social and emotional intelligence skills over time. We view our horses as equal partners in our work. They are the heart of everything that we do!

"It has made all the difference in her life! It has been about what she CAN DO and not what she can't. It has meant lasting friendships, learning responsibilities and a deep sense of belonging, which has enriched her life." - Patti (mother of program participant)
