Benefits of Therapeutic Riding
You mean there is more of a benefit than just the shear pleasure of being able to ride and hang out with "Ole Nellie?"
The 3-dimensional gait of the horse closely simulates the movement of the human pelvis and is a valuable therapeutic tool. This movement and the warmth of the horse promote many physical benefits such as increased circulation, relaxation of tight muscles, strengthening of weak muscles, increase in pelvic & trunk mobility, development of balance & coordination and improvement in posture.
Group riding interactive activities promote socialization, increase in vocalization and attention span.
Each rider has short and long-term therapeutic riding objectives which are monitored and measured to meet and challenge riders' abilities.
Referrals from therapists, doctors, schools, recreational agencies and private practice within the Phoenix market are received regularly.
And there is so much more!
