Equine therapy for special needs is an enjoyable way of helping adults and children using our well trained therapy horses. Our tailor made programs can be mounted or non-mounted and assist in providing physical and emotional therapy as well as psychological benefits including improved self-esteem and confidence. For mounted programs, riding will help strengthen muscle tone and the rhythm of riding helps to relax the body and improve balance and coordination.
Clients who can benefit include: autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, seizure disorder, visual and hearing impairment, anxiety disorder, learning disorder, substance abuse, multiple sclerosis, development disorder, muscular dystrophy, amputation, brain injury as well as behavioural problems.
The fact that the client is outdoors and breathing fresh air while interacting with the horse is an experience anyone will envy!
