Intake Process

  1. Once an application form has been submitted, along with a signed liability waiver and completed physician’s referral, the applicant will be placed on a wait-list.
  2. When therapy times open up, WETRA will call you to come in for an intake assessment to see if riding is a beneficial option and discuss other un-mounted program possibilities. Recommendations are made regarding which classes would be most suitable for you, based on your assessment outcomes, treatment goals and abilities. Please note that an assessment fee of $80 will be collected at the time of your appointment.
  3. Please be aware that there are several contraindications and precautions to participating in a therapeutic riding program and that the programs offered at WETRA may not be suitable and/or beneficial to your specific needs.
  4. Once your assessment has been reviewed and you are deemed an appropriate candidate for one of WETRA’s programs, you will be contacted to finalize a lesson day and time. Times are dependent upon your availability as well as the availability of our horses, staff and volunteers. Evening and weekend times are especially popular and therefore, have limited availability.
  5. If you are not a suitable candidate, WETRA will inform you as to the reason why. Please be aware that completion of the assessment does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
  6. You will need to secure your time slot by completing a registration package and submitting the session fees. WETRA charges $50 per lesson and fees are collected up front for 8 – 12 weeks at a time. There are no refunds given for cancellations made by the participant.
  7. Regular evaluations by the Instructor, Head Instructor and/or the Program Director is a mandatory component of your ongoing participation in the WETRA program.
  8. As with all therapy programs, there is a specific process for re-evaluation of your progress, therapy goals, medical status and continued participation in the WETRA program.

We look forward to helping you benefit from the special therapeutic programs WETRA has to offer.
