Hippotherapy: Using horses as a therapeutic activity for students


#1

Like horses? We Can Ride is a therapeutic horse ranch for anyone with unique needs and is looking to work with schools or reach out to more possible participants. I recently participated in a field day for a district last week and they had many vendors set up for community resources and activities for a wide range of special needs students. We Can Ride is interested in pairing up with school districts to reach out to help not only physically disabled, but for those with cognitive and mental health issues as well. There is research out there on how riding and caring for horses has helped many individuals. I don’t know all the details of how they want to work with schools, but it sounds like they would be willing to come to a site to discuss ideas. Just thought I would pass this on to you to share with anyone interested.
Here are the links to the handouts sent to me:
