The goal of each student is to improve their riding skills. Therapeutic Riding enhances cognitive, perceptual and motor skills through an integrative and goal-oriented approach. There are explicit objectives that include improved circulation, balance, coordination, strength, tone, postural reactions, proprioception, agility, self-confidence, social adjustment, and both mental and physical relaxation. Therapeutic Riding is offered Monday through Saturday during the Fall, Winter and Spring. One hour group lessons are taught by certified therapeutic riding instructors.
