What makes therapeutic riding so special?
The bonding between horse and rider and the relationships with instructors and volunteers has been known to help even “proven to improve” self esteem, self confidence and social interaction. Plus, it’s just plain fun for everyone!
For the physically handicapped rider, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves horses’ bodies, naturally mimicking human gait. Studies have shown that therapeutic riding provides the following benefits:
• Psychological bonding
• Lifting of the spirit
• Increased attention span
• Improve balance, posture and flexibility
“Someone that’s scared… I tell them, if I can do it you can do it.”
Together we can Empower, Enrich & Inspire people of all ages with physical, mental or emotional challenges.
