Participant Information

Equine-Assisted Services (EAS)

Equine-Assisted Therapies of South Florida offers a variety of programs that can be beneficial in a number of ways.  A physical, cognitive, or emotional special need does not limit a person from interacting with horses.  Research shows that individuals of all ages who participate in EAS can experience cognitive, physical and emotional rewards.

Financial Assistance

EATSF does not accept insurance and does not perform third-party medical billing.  For the Therapeutic Riding, Unmounted Horsemanship, the full cost of a 10-week session is $550, which averages out to $55 per lesson.  The Hippotherapy and Equine-Assisted Psycotherapy program fees differ depending on the program.

Financial assistance is offered for all programs, except for Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy. 

EATSF believes that everyone should have access to our programs and does not want cost to become a barrier to participation. Throughout the year, EATSF solicits support from individuals, businesses and foundations to provide scholarships for families in need. 

Once accepted into the program, an application for scholarship may be requested. Scholarship funds are limited and award amounts vary.
