Healing with Horses offers over 60 years of horse experience in general riding lessons, training, english and western in the style of dressage. Safety is our priority while bringing the world of Horsemanhip to you! We facilitate programs designed to help people seeking emotional, cognitive and spiritual healing which include recovery of many kinds. Horse commnication is considered a uniquely beneficial form of therapy for people with disabilities all over the world. These social animals are remarkably intuitive and can sense surface uncertainty as well as deep seated emotional distress. In affect , they hold up a mirror in which clients can view themselves. Our staff members translate and guide clients in applying short and long term changes to find balanced and more fulfilling lives.  A horse's gait, similar to the human walk, helps strengthen spine and pelvic muscles, posture and coordination, and increases joint mobility.

Along with the physical therapeutic benefits, horseback riding gives the riders a feeling of control, a sense of accomplishment and increased self-esteem. Therapeutic Riding, is the use of horse and equine-oriented activities to achieve a variety of therapeutic goals, including cognitive, physical, emotional, social, educational and behavioral goals. Equine Assisted Therapy for the challenged is recognized as one of the more progressive forms of therapy.

Therapeutic Riding is the use of a horse and equine-oriented activities to achieve a variety of therapeutic goals, including cognitive, physical, emotional, social, educational and behavioral goals. Clients learn balance, coordination and self-esteem while strengthing their core muscles. As a result of therapeutic sessions, poise, posture, strength, flexibility and over all improved quality of life. The ability to control a horse as well as one's own body inspires self-confidence, responsibility and teamwork. Best of all, it is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, which creates a special relationship between rider and horse and promotes personal challenge. Participants learn balance, coordination and self-esteem while strengthing their core muscles. As a result of lessons, poise, posture, strength and flexibility improve. Evidence shows the most insightful therapists eat hay. For decades Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy have helped troubled, lost and traumatized children, teens and adults find a sence of  well being, personal balance and happiness.
