Therapeutic Riding Program
What Is Therapeutic Riding?
Equestrian therapy can help enhance the physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive skills of persons with disabilities. Therapeutic Riding is a form of therapy that makes use of horses to help promote emotional growth.
How It Works?
Each child is paired with one of the Shelby Ranch program horses. With help from a qualified team of instructors & volunteers, children experience the joy of riding. During the one hour program session, children complete a series of exercises that are designed to help them improve strength and coordination, increase flexibility and learn about horseback riding. Children develop a bond with their horse and are able to achieve things they never thought possible.
