Welcome to the new home of Equi-Librium Therapy Center!
ETC Mission Statement
To provide exceptional accredited equine therapy services, improving the quality of life for those in the Ozarks.
Previously operating as Therapeutic Riding of the Ozarks, Equi-Librium Therapy Center, was established in 1995. In 2012, Equi-Librium Therapy Center (ETC) established it’s own 501(3)(c) non- profit organization and we are happy to say “the sky is the limit!”
Equi-Librium Therapy Center is a Premier Accredited Center through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH. Int’l) and a member of the American Hippotherapy Association (AHA). Equine-assisted therapies use the natural movement of a horse to strengthen muscles & increase body awareness, muscle coordination, communication, and self-confidence.
Equi-Librium Therapy Center proudly offers:
- Outpatient Occupational, Physical, and Speech therapies utilizing Hippotherapy as a treatment strategy
- Therapeutic Riding
- Equine Facilitated Learning
- Warriors Walk On - A dynamic partnership with The Wounded Warriors Program
Equi-Librium Therapy Center offers therapy services year-round in collaboration with Missouri State University, Burrell Behavior Health (CSTAR), Springfield Greene County Parks and Recreation (Northview Center), and assistance from 200+ trained volunteers.
