Therapeutic Riding Program: Horseback riding for the disabled is recognized as one of the most progressive forms of therapy. The ability to control a horse as well as one’s own body inspires self-confidence, responsibility and teamwork. It creates an enjoyable experience and relationship between rider and horse while providing a personal challenge. A horse’s gait, similar to the human walk, helps strengthen spine and pelvic muscles, improves posture and coordination, and increases joint mobility.
