Therapeutic Riding

What is Therapeutic Riding?

Physical Benefits:

The 3 - dimensional gait of the horse closely simulates the movement of the human pelvis and is a valuable therapeutic tool. This movement and the warmth of the horse promote many physical benefits such as increased circulation, relaxation of tight muscles, strengthening of weak muscles, increase in pelvic and trunk mobility, development of balance and coordination, and improvement in posture.

Social Benefits:

Group riding and interactive lessons promote socialization, increase in vocalization and attention span. One-on-one attention and individual goals are set and monitored so that the rider/participant sees progress from week to week.
