WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU....
Therapeutic horseback riding is a form of physical therapy for people who have a range of disabilities including physical, emotional, cognitive, and social difficulties.
Horses provide a tool for physical therapy, emotional growth, and cognitive improvement, in a unique format that is fun, exhilarating, and sometimes has the power to change a person's perspective on life!
Besides the physical benefits derived from therapeutic riding, the contact with the animal is a powerful experience, and the strong bond that is sometimes experienced has a profound, uplifting effect on people with Autism, ADD/ADHD and anxiety.
We always start with teaching our riders the safety around horses and at the premises, then they learn how to groom the horse, to look after it, to prepare it for riding before we mount the horse and learn how to ride it from the basics up.
We have special adaptive equipment, so the kids can have better connection with the animal, feel the heat and the movement that the horse passes through our bodies. Like a subtle massage, these impulses make the muscles relax, the internal organs start working, the core muscles start engaging, vestibular is working to keep the balance.
