Therapeutic riding is recreational therapy for disabled students to work on cognitive processing, participate in physical exercise, increase balance coordination, increase communication skills, and increase personal growth all while learning how to ride a horse. Riders that could benefit from Therapeutic Riding have disabilities including, but are not limited to:
Sensory Integration Disorder
- Down Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brain Injuries
- Birth Defects
- Attention Deficit Disorder
A typical therapeutic riding lesson might include: learning grooming and saddling skills, games on horseback, pattern exercises, trail rides, and groundwork (such as leading the horse). Instructors are certified through PATH International. We are so proud of all the accomplishments our riders have made! They continue to astonish us with each lesson, not to mention all the fun we’re having at the same time!
