"Enhancing lives through Equine Assisted Therapy"
Therapeutic riding uses equine-assisted activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and mental needs for people 2 to 102. Therapeutic riding provides all types of physical and mental benefits for our clients. Throughout the world, there are thousands of individuals with special needs who experience the rewarding benefits of horseback riding. A disability does not have to limit a person from riding horses. In our facility we have all the equipment needed so that almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding, including an adaptive saddle and a wheelchair lift.
Experiencing the motion of a horse can be very therapeutic for clients with physical or mental needs. Because horseback riding rhythmically moves the rider’s body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.
