Worthmore Equestrian Center partners with two therapeutic riding programs, Bridges at Worthmore and Kent Association of Riding Therapy (KART). Bridges is a Center Member and KART is a Premier Accredited Center of Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Int.). KART works with special education students enrolled in Kent County public schools. The organization also works with Chestertown Christian Academy and Easter Seals Camp Fairlee. Both programs offer adaptive riding lessons, recreational therapy, and other services for children and adults with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. 

Bridges at Worthmore is also certified in the EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) model, which teaches Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning. These techniques focus on experiential and ground-based activities with horses. With the help of the treatment team (a mental health professional, an equine specialist, and the horses), clients participate in ground activities with the horse with specific treatment goals in mind.
