Great story on one of our riders click http://www.pressrepublican.com/0806_family/local_story_194224507.html
Therapeutic horseback riding began in Europe over 50 years ago. It grew from a spark of intuitive wisdom in a few dedicated equestrians, into an established treatment method, now widely recognized by the medical, psychiatric, and social service professions worldwide. In the United States, quality of programming and accreditation for over 400 centers is monitored by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA), a non-profit service organization dedicated to promoting horseback riding for the handicapped. Equine assisted activities are a form of therapy that can change lives - strengthen bodies and minds, and offer lifelong opportunities for recreation and well-being. Classes take place in an environment that focuses on the rider's ability rather than disability.
