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 is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
At Healing Horses Therapeutic Riding Center we believe with appropriate individualized services, support, therapy and information, children with special needs will grow, learn and flourish. We will be utilizing a multi-prong therapeutic approach that will produce positive changes in critical areas of development including but not limited to core muscle strength, improved balance, speech and vocalizations, positive behavior, self esteem, visual motor and spatial skills. The goal is to maximize the child's functioning in their homes, schools and communities by increasing their language, reducing negative behaviors, increasing core muscle strength, improving relationships with peers, parents, teachers and caregivers, peer play, joint attention, self care and overall self esteem and independence. We are committed to being an inspiration and educational resource of the Therapeutic Horseback riding profession. Our vision is a community where people, regardless of ability, can achieve their fullest potential.
Walk AlongMinimum Age: 12Provide 1:1 intervention to ensure the safety and security of both the participant and the horse to maximize the therapeutic benefit to rider; work under the direction of our NARHA certified instructor along with other volunteers and the horse leaders to ensure peer interaction with other participants while working on the individual goals for their assigned rider;
Therapeutic SuppliesOur wish is for therapeutic sensory, cause/effect, fitness, skills play based materials to be used during the therapeutic lesson by our participants that range in age from 2 to adult. Gift Cards from WalMart, Target, Beyond Play, or similar retailers are requested.
Adopt-A-RiderThis is a new, low cost way for people, companies and charities to help support Healing Horses by directly offsetting the cost of the therapy to families by their donations. You can adopt a rider for a certain length of time of your choosing. Our hope is for a 6-12 months minimum, but the amount of your generosity is entirely up to you. The cost to the donor is $125/month. For $125/month you will adopt 1 rider in our therpaeutic riding program. This covers the cost to their family to ride with us for 1 month
