ALERT! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Vera Bradley & Thirty-One Bingo Fundraiser which was scheduled for Saturday, March 21st at John Enders Fire Company Social Hall has been postponed to July 25th. We will be updating our Events page and Facebook page with details and ticket information.
Unfortunately, our Spring Therapeutic Riding Session, which was to begin March 23rd, had to be canceled. We had hoped to be able to hold at least one week of our Fun with Horses Day Camp this summer, but due to the hesitation of student families and volunteers, that has been canceled as well.
We are in Phase One of our reopening – a 4-week mini-session which started May 28th for returning students that meet a specific criteria. Phase Two will start Aug 31 with our 8-week Fall Session.
Read more about our therapeutic services on the Programs page where you can download the Fall Session flyer. Contact us for more information or for a registration packet.
Therapeutic riding makes a difference and changes lives!
For people with disabilities and those who are at risk, the horse and its environment can provide unique healing and learning experiences. Under the watchful eye of a certified instructor, trained volunteers, educators and health care professionals, a student’s interaction with a horse can be therapeutic as well as a fun and freeing experience.
Therapeutic riding is fun. It also produces results. Some of the benefits one can expect:
Improved coordination and muscle tone
Improved posture and balance
Improved gross and fine motor skills
Increased range of motion
Improved attention and concentration
Improved sequencing and planning
Improved flexibility in thinking
Increased self confidence and self-cont
Increased understanding of consequences
Improved social interaction
Increased empathy and empowerment
