Therapeutic Riding Programs

Our Therapeutic Riding program at Hearts & Horses was founded on the belief that experiencing and riding horses significantly improves the lives of individuals with physical, emotional and developmental disabilities. 

 

  • Therapeutic Riding improves balance, muscle tone, range of motion and strength.
     

  • Our riders who are working through emotional difficulties, quickly learn to understand their horses; a first step in understanding themselves.
     

  • Our riders with learning disabilities and cognitive challenges benefit from the sensory integration provided through the horse.

 

All of our riders develop an increase in concentration, self-perception and a sense of empowerment.
