Whether it be riding, horsemanship or carriage driving, all adaptive programs have skill-based goals however inherently contribute positively to the physical, cognitive, emotional and social well-being of children and adults living with challenges.
Research demonstrates that adaptive riding and horsemanship programs provide challenged individuals the opportunity to develop stronger self-confidence, self-regulation and coping skills to better manage anxiety, anger, frustration and/or lack of attention. Research also shows that the horse’s unique multi-dimensional movement of it’s spine and pelvis "lends" itself to our riders. By manipulating the horse's movement characteristics and patterns we can directly influence our client's active movements necessary to achieve their specific goals.
