The Palouse Area Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) program is a division of People-Pet Partnership (PPP), a community service program of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University (WSU). PATH's mission is to provide recreational, therapeutic horseback riding for people with physical, mental, and psychological disabilities. The program was founded in 1979 and is a Premier Accredited Center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International. PATH benefits not only the riders and their families, but also the community members and the WSU students and staff who volunteer their time and talents to make this program a success. PATH offers weekly classes for people with disabilities. If you live in the area and would like to be part of PATH (as a rider or as a volunteer), please give us a call at (509) 335-7347.
