Our therapeutic riding instructors teach equestrian skills to participants with special physical, cognitive, sensory, learning, social, or emotional needs.
Our instructors work with the riders to participate in a recognized sport, which helps develop independent skills that carry over to their everyday lives. Once they are mounted, many of our riders experience a freedom of motion and ability they simply don’t or can’t enjoy in other aspects of their lives.
Integrates equine-human interaction while providing opportunities to teach critical life skills such as trust, respect, honesty, and communication. The clients are not mounted on a horse, but are working on building relationships with their horse through ground-work.
