Nestled among the towering pines of Spring, Texas, lies Inspiration Ranch; a special place where remarkable learning opportunities and personal victories are happening every day for individuals with special needs. We are a Premiere Accredited Center through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International.
Inspiration Ranch breaks down barriers and celebrates the inclusion of individuals with physical, emotional, and social disabilities. Inspiration Ranch provides unparalleled personal advancements and results for people with special needs. While riding, the client must repeatedly respond to the horses rhythmic movement, which stimulates the muscular and nervous system; promoting change in the riders strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, social, behavioral responsiveness, sensory processing and confidence. Lessons are designed with the individual rider’s goals and needs in mind.
Classes are 30-45 minutes in length and clients attend once a week. All potential participants undergo a comprehensive in-take process that involves completion of registration forms, which includes a physician’s release form and an evaluation. Horses and students are matched to complement personality, ability and developmental needs of the client.
Participants engage in a physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy treatment strategy that utilizes the movement of the horse as part of an integrated intervention program.
