Therapeutic Riding involves using purposely trained ponies to carry out specific tasks that over time help improve physical, emotional and social skills for children facing intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, autism or low-self-esteem. It provides a safe and calm environment for the children and the interaction with the ponies benefits the physical and emotional needs of the child. No previous riding experience is necessary.
