Programs at Medicine Horse
At Medicine Horse, we believe in the possibilities of every individual. Therapeutic riding can benefit riders in many ways, including: improved muscle tone, improved motor development, balance skills, social skills, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
Supervised riding or groundwork activities specifically designed to provide opportunities for the challenged rider to accomplish physical, emotional, social or cognitive goals.
We offer individual and group sessions for clients who have a variety of physical or developmental limitations, including:
- Brain Injuries
- Down’s Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
Students must be referred by a physician or therapist. No prior horseback riding experience is required. Riders must wear appropriate clothing (long pants and closed-toe shoes). All riders must wear a safety helmet when participating in programs.
