THERAPEUTIC RIDING

Therapeutic Riding is taught by certified riding instructors and the rider learns to influence the actions of the horse. Horsemanship skills are included along with physical, cognitive and emotional goals.

HIPPOTHERAPY

Hippotherapy is physical, occupational or speech therapy that utilizes equine movement. This strategy is used as part of an integrated treatment program to achieve functional outcomes. Specially trained therapists evaluate individuals needing this distinctive therapy and lead the treatment with the help of a certified therapeutic riding instructor. The movement of the horse is used to influence the rider; horsemanship is not a goal.

EQUINE FACILITATED PSYCHOTHERAPY

Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy offers unique opportunities to improve individuals or families’ mental health needs through the partnership of a horse. This service has been accomplished through building partnerships with community organizations that assist in improving the mental health needs of our community. This service is facilitated by a certified riding instructor and a qualified mental health therapist and is a combination of mounted and un-mounted horse activities that address the client’s goals. Currently we are serving a military group from a local mental health hospital, combing our Operation Mack - Healing With Horses with our EFP program.
