Naples Equestrian Challenge – A PATH International Premier Center
Naples Equestrian Challenge (NEC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization offering therapeutic riding for Collier County, Florida adults and children with disabilities. We are a Premier Center through PATH International -Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (formerly NARHA). Premier Centers are known to have met stringent safety standards and have achieved excellence in providing quality equine-assisted activities. Our approval as a Premier Center means that NEC has been carefully scrutinized and has been determined to have met the accreditation requirements in the areas of administration, facility, and programs. We are very thankful to our volunteers, rider families, and staff who made this accreditation possible!
