Sunshine Ranch Therapeutic Riding
Sunshine Ranch Therapeutic Riding provides equine therapy to children and adults with special needs, to help build strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, confidence, self-control, trust and social skills.
The movement a rider experiences, while on a horse, is similar to the normal human gait. A rider also increases the riders core muscle strength while on a horse. Horsemanship improves sensory processing, awareness, concentration, muscle tone, and hand-eye coordination, and develops respect and self-control, planning and multi-tasking. Riders have so much fun riding and playing that they don’t even realize how hard they are working.
