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.
