What is Therapeutic Riding?

Therapeutic Riding is an equine assisted activity which can be effective in improving balance, co-ordination, emotional control, self confidence and self esteem. It provides an intense, multi-sensory experience. It can help develop muscle tone and improve posture, support the development of fine and gross motor skills, help promote efficient sensory processing and aid with social skills.
