© All rights reserved, Equine Pathways Australia Ltd

EPA developed from real experience of people with injury, illness or disability looking to personally develop and improve their life opportunities and wellbeing. Our philosophy is to offer the chance to participate in a community-based program, using horses, shared with others with similar life experiences. This is achieved through integrated sporting, health and community participation programs and the identification and creation of vocational pathways.

We use qualified dressage coaches and allied health providers providing services such as trauma counselling, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sports psychology, nutritional advice, osteopathy and personal training.

Equine Pathways Australia headquarters are currently located at Balmoral Equestrian Centre in Narre Warren North, Victoria, however we provide "satellite programs" aimed at delivering the EPA program in each state. The cornerstone of the EPA Program is our 2-day weekend clinics that involve supervised mounted dressage lessons and group individual lessons with the allied health providers. Each participant has a set of agreed objectives and goals against which their development is measured.

The EPA program specifically includes the carers and families of the participants in order to promote a shared sense of success and achievement as goals are reached.

We believe the program is unique in that it brings together a number of professionals from very different fields, where they develop one structured plan for each individual in a holistic manner.
