WHAT IS PPTRC?PPTRC, a 501(c)(3) organization, is the oldest, largest and the only PATH premier accredited center in southern Colorado. In the beginning, PPTRC provided Therapeutic Riding until they entered a relationship with Memorial Health System to implement a Hippotherapy program. Every year, PPTRC’s number of participants has grown. Due to the increasing demand, a partnership was created with the Pikes Peak Range Riders in 2004 to move PPTRC to the Latigo Heritage Center in Elbert, Colorado.
With more space, the programming has continued to grow. In 2008, PPTRC implemented a Operation Mack - Healing With Horses program which provides equine assisted activities to our local military. Most recently, PPTRC has implemented Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy services into their weekly schedule. The benefits of equine assisted activities and therapies are not limited to only physical improvements as many of our clients speak to their cognitive and emotional benefits.
Our classes are goal-oriented to meet the individual’s personal needs. Each client is assessed prior to participation and goals are developed which focus on the physical, cognitive, or mental needs of the client. All of our clients are served through our four specific programs.
