Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization utilizes another organization or organization(s) with direct responsibility for the care of horses to provide its services.


Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Talbot Special Riders Inc. provides physical and emotional therapy to individuals using horses.

Our curriculum is adjusted to the individual needs/requirements and/or capabilities of our patients. Our goal is not to turn out great equestrians, but to build confidence, self esteem, and a sense of accomplishment. Our therapy also increases their attention span and develops their ability to take, understand and follow directions. We work on coordination and spatial relationships, as well as Stretching and strengthening exercises.

Thus individuals can better realize their potential and find a place in our society in which to lead a productive life. We emphasize abilities not disabilities!

Scholarships
We offer all our clients a 50% scholarship ($150 for a 10 week session. We depend solely on individual donations and small grants. Even though we have the lowest fees of any therapeutic riding program, more and more clients cannot even afford the small discounted fee, so we grant them a 100% scholarship. We never turn away a client for lack of funds. Additional donations for full or partial scholarships are needed.
