THH-Kona is a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited program coordinated by Nancy Bloomfield, a registered physical therapist and a PATH Intl. registered therapeutic riding instructor. There are 2 additional PATH Intl. registered therapeutic riding instructors affiliated with the program
The program operates on Sundays at Horseplay Equestrian Center. Located in Honalo, about eight miles south of Kailua-Kona town, Horseplay is a professional riding academy and horse boarding facility. We are completely accessible and have a wheelchair mounting ramp for those who are unable to mount from the ground.The success of our program is due to our dedicated staff, volunteers and especially our horses. We are fortunate to have the use of four responsive horses and two gentle ponies to help our riders learn riding skills. Students also enjoy additional benefits, including improving their balance and strength, building their self confidence, and learning to care for and respect these amazing, special animals. Our caring volunteers help our riders to mount and dismount, as well as assisting with leading, sidewalking, and teaching riding skills.
