Hope Haven is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides equine based programs for individuals with disabilities and diverse needs. These programs may include adaptive riding and horsemanship lessons, physiotherapy/hippotherapy, therapeutic recreation and camps. In order to provide the safest and most effective programming possible, we require a professional referral to indicate why this individual is appropriate, how they may benefit as well as to make sure their medical history does not place them at risk. After receiving the client’s full application, Hope Haven’s Program Manager and Physiotherapist together with our equestrian professionals will assess further to determine appropriate programming needs.
If your client has any physical conditions or medical concerns, you must be a physician or nurse practitioner completing this form. Otherwise, you may fall under one of these professional titles: physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, social worker, psychologist, teacher or support worker.
If you have any questions, concerns or would like to discuss your client in more detail, please contact Hope Haven directly. You can also visit our website to learn about our programs, staff and CanTRA accredited facility.
Thank you for your time assisting your client on their way to achieving success at Hope Haven!
