Tenneson doesn’t give pony rides. He helps change lives!

Pony up and help HETRA raise $20,000 during Omaha Gives! so we can change the lives of more children and adults with disabilities through equine assisted therapy.

At Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy, our mission is to improve the quality of life both physically and emotionally of adults and children with disabilities through equine assisted activities.

What We Do:

HETRA allows people with disabilities to receive therapy outside of a clinical or medical setting. Our therapy sessions take place outside or in a barn environment and with the assistance of a stable of gentle creatures like Tenneson.

Our certified staff members, with the help of trained volunteers, work with an average of 140 participants each week. Through several core programs, participants benefit from increased flexibility, balance, and coordination while also improving their self-esteem.

Our services include:

  • – Therapeutic Riding
  • – Hippotherapy
  • – Therapeutic Carriage Driving
  • – Equine Services for Veterans
  • – Summer Camps
  • – Life Skills Training
  • – Public Riding Lessons
