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
