Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy was started in 1989 by Steve and Janet
Henthorn of Omaha, Nebraska. The program started with one participant, one horse, and three
volunteers.  Our mission is to improve the quality of life both physically and emotionally of
adults and children of all ability levels through equine-assisted activities. We have grown
significantly over the years, we now have 28 wonderful therapy horses, 16 PATH, Intl. certified
instructors, 10 licensed occupational, physical, and mental health therapists, and over 150

HETRA serves a variety of participants including children and adults with disabilities such as
cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, brain tumors, head or spinal cord
injuries, visual impairments, autism, developmental delays, and strokes. 

HETRA is a non-profit 501c3 organization. HETRA relies heavily on donations, grants, and
fundraising to keep the program running. In order to keep our services, affordable HETRA has to
supplement approximately $150 each time a participant rides (appx.150 participants ride each
week).  HETRA considers all of its donors part of our team. We could not run our program
without the support of the community.
