About CTH

Colorado Therapy Horses is a non-riding equine assisted therapy program, located in Greeley, Colorado, offering programs found nowhere else.  Started in 2003 by founder Richard McMahan, CTH is focused on clients obtaining personal power while working with the instincts of the horse while on the ground rather then focusing the physical therapy of riding.  This environment allows the client to open up and share without feeling like they have to, allowing them to gain their personal power back.


CTH has worked with a number of clients ranging from Weld County Special Education Schools, Veterans with PTSD, cancer survivors, CASA, Weld County Treatment Courts and many others.  Colorado Therapy Horses focuses on two target audiences; treatment and retreat.  The treatment audience is defined as people in need of guidance and tailored emotional healing.  This can range from veterans returning home to clients assigned by the courts for mandated therapy.  CTH offers a G.I. Joey's Training program and has worked with a number of courts in Greeley, such as the drug and alcohol rehabilitation court and the family court systems.  The retreat audience includes any business or organization looking for team building and communication workshops.  CTH has work with a number of retreat clients including the Sierra school students and teachers, who came together and created communicative bonds not found anywhere else.
