Therapeutic Riding.... 
I have been taking riding lessons from Amy for about two years now and I really enjoy them. I started them to help me improve my balance and it was the best thing I did. My balance is so much better now. Amy has been helping me with learning a lot: parts of the saddle, the horse and a lot of riding practices. I enjoy my riding and would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes horses.

Nash Hill Equestrian Center has been providing therapeutic riding lessons since 2009. Our lessons provide a fun, safe and interactive riding experience for those with physical, emotional or learning challenges. 

Our instructor Amy North is NOT a therapist but is certified through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International Association. She is a registered level instructor and has been involved with therapeutic riding for more than 20 years first as a volunteer with Loithlorian Therapeutic Riding Center and then as a volunteer instructor. In 2009 Amy earned her registered level instructor certification through the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA).The organization took the PATH name a few years ago but has maintained the high standards required by NARHA and its certified instructors. 

Please visit to learn more about therapeutic riding instructor certification. 


All our students must be approved by their physician before enrolling in lessons. If you are interested in therapeutic riding please call us at 716-257-5257 (ask for Amy)
