Harmony Equestrian Services, LLC
Harmony Equestrian Services, LLC is proud to announce our
sponsorship of the Harmony Riding Academy, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit
Organization. Harmony Riding Academy is
a community based educational facility that uses equestrian based therapies to
teach various horsemanship skills (mounted and unmounted) to those with mental
and physical disabilities and their families. This developmental program will provide services to Veterans
with PTSD and children with physical and mental disabilities (ADHD, autism,
mental delay, etc); these services are also available to their family members. Harmony Riding Academy’s goal is to help families who have
not seen improvement with traditional therapies, and currently offers lessons
with a Certified Riding Instructor, Amanda Lluvera.
Mrs. Lluvera is actively pursuing her PATH
(Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Certification; until
then, she is offering structured riding lessons geared towards working with a
person’s disabilities (mental or physical).
To ensure a successful program in 2018-2019, Harmony Riding
Academy has established the following goals:
Fundraise to help offset the costs of Mrs.
Lluvera’s PATH Certification
Start a riding program providing equine based
therapies to those in need
Fundraise for a covered riding arena to ensure therapy
is not delayed in the event of inclement weather
Develop annual individual assistance programs; such
as, assisting a disabled Veteran with obtaining her bronze medal through USEF.
