Dream on Curls Therapeutic Riding
Contact: E. Zoe Lirakis
"Therapeutic riding uses equine assisted activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the emotional, cognitive, physical, and social well being of individuals with disabilities. These equine activities have been shown to be beneficial to the child with physical or developmental challenges while presenting itself in a fun rewarding manner. Studies show that therapeutic riding can increase flexibility, balance, coordination, memory, sequencing, attention, and body awareness. All of this can be accomplished while the child is having fun!
The Dream On Curls Riding Center offers therapeutic riding and grooming programs for a number of special needs children and young adults: The disabilities served- but not limited to- are: ADHD; ADD; Cerebral Palsy; Autism Spectrum Disorder; Emotional/Behavioral Disorders; Learning Disabilities; Neuromuscular Disorders.
