Equine Assisted Therapy Alaska (EATA) is proud to acknowledge Alyeska Landscape Professional’s gift of $500 in support of EATA’s 2015 therapeutic horseback riding program! Alyeska Landscape Professional is located in Girdwood, Alaska and they truly are professionals! Their work not only includes landscape for commercial and residential properties, but also wetland mitigation and revegetation, and Mr. Josh Meister, President, is a Certified Arborist! Alyeska Landscape Professional’s donation will directly support EATA’s equine-assisted therapies and activities, to include EATA’s Freedom Reins program for veterans with disabilities. From all of us at EATA, Thank You Mr. Josh Meister and the rest of the crew at Alyeska Landscape Professionals!
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.
