Equine Assisted Activities
Therapeutic riding encompasses many equine assisted activities. Riding, grooming, and leading horses encourages physical, cognitive and emotional advancement and helps develop social skills for those of all abilities. The horse's natural movement replicates the human gait and riding encourages three dimensional hip rotation and movement of the spine. This exceptional ability is beneficial not only to those with special needs, but also to anyone with mobility issues.
