Horse Heritage Educational Program provides therapeutic horseback riding to individuals with mental, physical, emotional and social challenges. We use equine-assisted activities to achieve psychological and educational goals for people with physical, mental and psychological impairments as well as provide the individual with skills in the sport of riding. The emphasis is to incorporate cognitive, behavioral, psychological and physical goals into the program plan while teaching adapted riding. The horse is a strong motivator for accomplishing these goals. People with physical, mental and psychological impairments may also use equine activities, adapted as needed, as a recreation and leisure experience. The emphasis is on an enjoyable and relaxing experience that provides additional therapeutic benefits in the area of socialization, posture, mobility, and an overall improved quality of life. Individuals may participate in horse-related activities to their maximum ability in an atmosphere of support, structure and socialization for the primary purpose of intrinsic enjoyment.
