Therapeutic Riding and Animal Assisted Therapy
Sign Up for Services
BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT SERVICES
CLIENT IN-TAKE PROCESS
The New Participant Packet contains an Application, Consent & Release Form and Medical History Form (which needs to be thoroughly filled out, signed by an MD, DO, NP or PA and dated to be valid).
This can be done in one of the following ways…
Once CHAT has received your completed application, we will contact you to schedule an evaluation. An evaluation helps us ensure that we can safely accommodate you in our program, recommend the proper class, develop therapeutic goals and create good rider/volunteer/horse teams. Not everyone can be accepted into the program due to safety or physical / medical contraindications.
Upon completion of an evaluation and determination by CHAT that we are able to safely accommodate the participant, the participant is able to register for services. A participant’s individual needs and abilities determine which service is best suited for registration.
