Therapeutic Riding uses equine assisted activities for the purpose of contributing in a positive nature to cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with disabilities. Therapeutic riding can provide benefits in the area of therapy, education, sport and recreation and leisure.
A disability does not need to limit a person from riding horses. Experiencing the motion of a horse can be very therapeutic. Horseback riding rhythmically moves the rider’s body very similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength. Horseback riding can provide recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the outdoors and farm life.
Our mini therapy horses are truly a blessing to the Northwest Ohio communities as they share hours of emotional support and learning. Team Thunder is on the road from April through October. Email: email@example.com
