About cedar Creek

Cedar Creek was founded in 1988 and provides comprehensive equine assisted therapy to more than 150 individuals per year. Each Spring, Summer and Fall, hundreds of community members come to Cedar Creek to volunteer their time to be part of the therapy team. All classes include instructors that are certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH). Cedar Creek is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and does not receive any United Way, State or Federal funding, but instead relies on the generosity of the community to help keep us in the saddle.

Karen Grindler is the Executive Director of Cedar Creek and a PATH Certified Instructor. Read more about the Staff of Cedar Creek.
