Update to All RIDERS, FAMILIES AND VOLUNTEERS
We have been offering a few classes with a very limited number of riders and volunteers and we feel the safety measures in place for COVID-19 have been very effective here at the farm. As we continue to watch the numbers rise, safety of riders, volunteers, and staff remain our first focus.
If you have not reviewed the Guidelines required to come back and volunteer at the farm, please review them. These apply to all visitors, volunteers and riders:
>>Stirrups ‘n Strides Guidelines
In the following weeks we will be contacting volunteers to get your feelings about returning to the farm for various volunteer activities. We are making plans for regrouping to offer classes in the Fall. We miss you all! The horses also miss your TLC and attention!
Take good care!
What makes therapeutic riding so special?
The bonding between horse and rider and the relationships with instructors and volunteers has now been proven to be beneficial to many with a variety of challenges. 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 and relationship building
• Lifting of the spirit, improved self esteem and self confidence!
• Increased attention span and social interaction
• Improved balance, posture and flexibility
See how therapeutic riding made a difference for Kathy Gray — and is helping others.
“Someone that’s scared… I tell them, if I can do it you can do it.” – Kathy
Together we can Empower, Enrich & Inspire people of all ages with physical, mental or emotional challenges.
Thanks for donating! Every little bit helps!
