"The Hanson Center is a non-profit, self-funded program under the Ray Graham Association (RGA), which offers therapeutic horseback riding for children and adults with disabilities and recreational programs for children and adults with and without disabilities. It is located in the middle of a suburban residential area in Burr Ridge, IL. and is one of the few well-established centers with therapeutic horseback riding programs in the state of Illinois. The P.A.T.H. (Professional Association for Therapeutic Horseback riding) organization sponsors assessments and issues certificates to THR instructors. The training program is offered at multiple facilities including academic learning, experiential learning and skills to design classes with clear goals. Instructors are also encouraged to have 20 hours or continuing education or experience each year to renew their knowledge as instructors. Hanson Center is one of the few facilities with premier credits admitted by the PATH."
