Why Therapeutic Riding?
Therapy – Educational – Sport – Recreational – Leisure
Therapeutic riding uses equine oriented activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well being of individuals with varying types and degrees of special needs through adaptive riding and therapeutic riding. Equine activities are used to achieve goals, with the horse being a strong motivator for accomplishing these goals. Emphasis is on a positive, enjoyable, and relaxing experience that provides additional therapeutic benefits in the areas of socialization, posture, strength, mobility, and an overall improved quality of life.
