Our Equine Services

Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic Riding utilizes horseback riding to promote physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. Participants engage in guided riding sessions that enhance muscle tone, balance, coordination, and confidence. This service provides a unique opportunity for individuals with special needs to experience mobility and freedom in a nurturing environment.

Equine-Assisted Learning

Equine-Assisted Learning focuses on the development of life skills through interactive activities with horses. It emphasizes non-verbal communication, leadership, problem-solving, and teamwork. Participants learn about themselves and others by engaging in tasks that require cooperation with these gentle animals, fostering personal growth and social awareness.

Horse Care Education

Horse Care Education offers comprehensive learning opportunities about the daily management and care of horses. This service covers topics such as feeding, grooming, health maintenance, and stable management. It is designed for individuals interested in equine sciences, providing hands-on experience that builds respect, responsibility, and a deeper bond between humans and horses.
