What is Therapeutic Riding?

According to PATH International,  “Therapeutic riding is an equine-assisted activity for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs.”

Through gentle play, games, songs, and stretching exercises, therapeutic riding may provide riders many physical, emotional and psychological opportunities for improvements in their daily lives.
