Horseback riding for adults and children with disabilities is recognized as one of the more progressive forms of therapeutic recreation. The ability to control a horse as well as one’s own body inspires self- confidence, responsibility and teamwork. Best of all, it is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, which creates a special relationship between rider and horse and promotes personal growth and achievement. Some benefits of equine assisted therapeutic activities include:
- Increased core muscle tone
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Increased self-esteem and self confidence
