Therapeutic Riding offers a unique and challenging opportunity for those with limitations to be empowered with a sense of pride, accomplishment and independence. The ability to communicate with and control a 1,000 pound animal can take confidence to great heights. Therapeutic Riding is structured so that each rider increases his equestrian abilities at his own pace to his greatest capability. Many riders excel to become proficient and independent horsemen. Multiple disciplines are taught: English Equitation, Western Equitation, Dressage and Trail. Summer programs are available that explore polo and gymkhana games.
Therapeutic riding differs from hippotherapy in that we teach recreational horseback riding skills in the therapeutic environment. Prior to your first lesson, your instructor will go over your file to identify appropriate goals, such as communication, following 1, 2 or 3 step instructions, self control, etc. From your first lesson, we will work with you to meet these goals and to set new goals.
Therapeutic Riding at Vinceremos is an opportunity for challenge and support. The rider will be challenged to reach new heights in areas of movement, communication and capability, and will be supported by both our two-legged and four-legged staff along the way. Reaching a goal, meeting a new milestone or winning a ribbon is a joyous occasion for everyone at Vinceremos, we celebrate every victory.
