Equine Assisted Therapy Alaska is currently a summer only program – until 2017! Our most recent (since 2009) goal is to construct an indoor riding arena to expand our programming.
We start building this month – August 2016!
Thank you to the many supporters and hard-working members of Rainbow Connection and EATA, who have made this dream a reality!
