Our Story


GaitWay Therapeutic Horsemanship provides equine therapy to children and adults with a variety of disabilities. By riding, they grow stronger, both mentally and physically.

We serve children and adults who have cerebral palsy, autism, developmental delays, scoliosis, ADHD, depression, anxiety, Joubert's syndrome, traumatic head injuries, multiple sclerosis.

Riding works in conjunction with other therapies to make our clients stronger while also connecting them with the world around them. 

One of only a few certified equine therapy centers in Louisiana, Gaitway has used horses to help the disabled since it was founded in 2005.

GaitWay provides instructors and therapists accredited by the State of Louisiana, Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.). These organizations are established leaders and professional associations in their fields, renowned for providing safe and effective programs where the possibilities to succeed are endless.
