Therapeutic riding, also known as adaptive horse riding or equine assisted activities, is horseback riding designed to meet each student’s individual physical and emotional need. Basic equestrian skills are taught and structured to gently challenge the students through exercises, games and movement. The benefits are endless. Students gain more than strength and flexibility, they develop friendships, improve confidence and self-esteem.
