SpiritHorseTherapeutic Center of SW Washington is licensed by SpiritHorse International Therapeutic Riding Center.   We have been given full rights and privileges to represent this organization as a "SpiritHorse Licensed Center".  We are using the same proven award winning program as was established by Charles Fletcher.  SpiritHorse provides Equine Assisted Therapy with a different goal than that of recreational therapeutic riding centers.  It includes, for example, 88 specific steps provided in a "one-on-one" setting for intervening with children diagnosed with Autism and other disabilities. 

SpiritHorse Therapeutic Center of SW Washington is unique – SpiritHorse provides all therapeutic equine-assisted services to the economically disadvantaged“free of charge”, estimating that at least 65% of families would otherwise be unable to afford therapy.  We assist each individual with special needs to strive in “reaching their full potential through interaction with horses.” 


A Dream Realized -

Chris Weaver, founder of SpiritHorse Therapeutic Center of SW Washington.

When her granddaughter needed specialized therapy, but there was none to be found, God gave Chris a vision to become certified and offer equine therapy in Southwest Washington. In this full potential feature, Chris shares the story of SpiritHorse Therapeutic Center of Southwest Washington.
