What we do
Equine-Assisted Activities & Therapies
The Courtney Grimshaw Equine Therapeutic Program, or “Courtney Cares,” at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International Premier Accredited Center.
Courtney Cares is available to children and adults, with physical and/or cognitive conditions, and veterans, in the Brazos Valley. We offer three distinct programs: equine-assisted activities, hippotherapy, and “Equine Services for Heroes.”
Our program provides experiential learning about the therapeutic horsemanship industry for Aggie student volunteers, while they serve the community and demonstrate the Texas A&M core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity, and selfless service.
