Behind the Scenes
Here at Theratails Riding Center, our mission is to serve all children with special needs by providing them with the best hippotherapy services to help them gain greater independence and improved function.
Horseback riding moves the rider’s body in a manner most similar to a human gait; therefore, riders show improvement in posture, balance, muscle control, and sensory motor skills. Psychologically, riders make gains in self-awareness, self-confidence, self-discipline and concentration. As the legs of these beautiful animals become the legs of our riders, they are permitted a sense of freedom and mobility seldom experienced elsewhere in their lives. A very special bond is established between horse and rider which encourages unconditional love, trust and self-worth.
