Benefits of Healing HOOVES

Horseback riding is good for the body and soul.

 

The movement of a horse beneath its rider teaches balance and good posture. The effort required in actively moving with the horse and maneuvering it helps with strength and muscle tone.

 

As the riders learn safe and correct riding techniques, they gain self-awareness and confidence. Participants develop a love for and knowledge of their equine friends, while learning more about their own strengths and weaknesses.

 

Caring for a horse's needs teaches riders responsibility and kindness. Horseback riding becomes a fun form of therapy and recreation as the rider forms a trusting bond with the gentle giant underneath.

 

The interaction between horse and rider has been proven to encourage independence, freedom, and a positive self image. There is something about getting a 1,500 pound animal to do what you ask that gives a rider renewed confidence and joy!

 

   

Riding turns 'I wish'

into 'I can'.
