Benefits of Therapeutic Riding
There are many benefits participants in our Therapeutic Riding program may benefit from including:
Physical Benefits: Therapeutic Riding is a great source of physical exercise for all participants. Lessons are adapted within the limits of the participants strength and energy to provide a recreational activity they can enjoy.
Cognitive Benefits: Participants will receive benefit through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning while learning how to ride their horse. During the lesson key skills such as following directions, active concentration, and fine motor skills will be worked on through activities in the lesson.
Social & Emotional Benefits: Our riding lessons are organized in a group setting which allows participants to benefit from social interactions with their peers. Riders will also benefit from improved self-esteem and confidence as they progress in learning how to ride.
