Belisi is committed to being an inclusive and accessible service for all members of our society, including the aged care sector. Given the lack of mobility common in retired Australians, Belisi has the resources to bring our well trained ponies to aged care facilities around the Riverina to assist with the wellbeing of residents.
For an animal of their size, horses have one of the gentlest souls. Our well trained ponies & horses can make a visit to your facility and offer feel good therapy of a different kind! The experience encourages residents to reminisce with each other about their experiences with their life on the land or their experiences with horses over the years. It can become an important part of their lifestyle program as it brings such joy to residents and helps start conversations about the past. Residents who are normally withdrawn become more aware of everything happening and the presence of the horse improves their mood.
Equine therapy encompasses a range of medical treatments that includes activities with horses and other equines to promote physical and mental health.
