Article About PATH Intl. PAC Highlights New Research

Windridge Equestrian Therapeutic Center of East Texas, a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center in Longview, TX, was recently featured in an article in The article, "Research Could Validate Horse Therapy Benefits at East Texas Center," by Glenn Evans, reports on the Orbis Biomechanical System Integration Suite, which uses motion-capture sensors on the horse and rider to produce a digital image of what's going on with both. This research is meant to quantify the improvements in a rider over a period of time, giving EAAT hard data for its claims of the benefits of therapeutic horsemanship and hippotherapy.
