THERAPEUTIC RIDING LESSONS
Together We CAN
Therapeutic horse riding is a multi-area intervention therapy used for children and adults with a variety of physical, cognitive, emotional and developmental disabilities. Therapeutic Riding has been recognised for decades to improve:
It is also a healthy and fun activity.
The horse's warmth and three-dimensional movement are transmitted through the rider's body, gradually making it more relaxed and supple, reducing spasms and improving balance, mobility, posture and coordination; strengthening muscles throughout a rider's body increases circulation and promotes better overall health.
Therapeutic Riding gently and rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, so those with mobility problems discover a new freedom in movement. At Better Together, we also integrate breathing, yoga stretches and mindfulness into our sessions. In addition, motor functions are improved by this unique and enjoyable therapy.
Better Together Therapeutic Riding Centre offers both Individual and Group Lessons.
