Indoor Riding Arena
(Anchorage, AK) – Equine Assisted Therapy Alaska (EATA) is excited to announce the winner of the pre-construction bid for our indoor riding arena – The Boutet Company, Inc. Mr. Jacques Boutet, Professional Engineer, and his associates have extensive knowledge and experience with planning, permitting, and managing construction projects of a similar nature. We look forward to commencing our work with Mr. Boutet and The Boutet Company, Inc. Thank you to all of our bidders for their time and willingness to work on this project.

In 2010, an anonymous and incredibly generous Anchorage resident donated an indoor riding arena to benefit EATA’s therapeutic riding program. The indoor riding arena will allow EATA to operate throughout the year and extend our services, not only to current clients, but also to new clients. Thank you to our anonymous donor – we cannot thank You enough!

Equine Assisted Therapy Alaska (EATA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding to children, adults, and veterans living with disabilities in the Anchorage area.
