The Equine Experience
Interacting with horses can lead people to find confidence, peace, control, a mental and emotional calm, energy; understanding, purpose, pride, and all the things that can be forgotten when dealing with a mental, physical, or emotional disability or challenge.
This experience of rediscovery is happening throughout the country in many therapeutic riding programs. Its success is evident in those who are part of or have completed therapeutic riding programs. Because horseback riding is physically; mentally and emotionally taxing, it presents as the perfect opportunity and venue.
The energy and connection between horse and partner is intense and unable to be recreated; it is infectious due to the horses’ loyalty, strength, lack of judgment, and caring.
