Therapeutic riding benefits individuals with special needs in many different ways.  For physical needs it can develop trunk strength, muscle strength and overall body control.  Motor skills are also greatly improved on the back of a horse.  We see riders who have never spoken say their first words, children who have trouble learning reciprocate things their family never thought possible, and smiles come to the faces of kids who have a hard time finding happiness.  For some it may mean sitting up on their own when they never could before, for others it may be a simple as finding joy in an activity each week.  Please contact us for more information on how therapeutic riding may benefit the child or adult wit special needs in your life.
