Each rider is afforded the opportunity to gain independence and bond with both their horse and instructor in a rare way.
Grooming - Before each lesson, the rider will spend time grooming and prepping their horse for the ride ahead. This gives them not only the opportunity to experience the care that a horse needs, but also the chance to bond with their horse and get to know them before the ride begins.
Independent Riding - Each rider is given the opportunity to set and fulfill their own goals of strength and ability as well as guide and command their horse. This not only provides therapeutic physical activity, but also fosters a sense of independence and control for the rider.
Challenging and Engaging Games - Trails and games encourage the rider to achieve optimal physical ability and offer and enjoyable emotional reward that stimulates interest and engagement in the therapy and self-confidence.
