What is Therapeutic Riding?
Therapeutic Horsemanship, or Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies, includes a broad range of professionals and realms of activities designed to teach horsemanship skills to individuals with special needs or challenges. A PATH-Intl certified instructor or therapist uses the equine to help participants address cognitive, emotional, social and/or behavioral skills. In addition, to many physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, stroke and traumatic brain injury, centers work with those with autism, attention deficit disorder, anxiety and depression. Many have targeted programs to help at-risk youth, veterans and military personnel, and the elderly. With specially trained and certified therapists Centers serve individuals with psychological diagnosis and addictions.
