Life is full of challenges. This is especially true for those with special needs who must adapt to a world that doesn’t always adapt to them.

 

  How you respond to those challenges shows the world who you are.

 

Here at Special Equestrians of the Treasure Coast, we give our students one, ultimate challenge: Build a relationship with a horse, regardless of your disability. Whether the student becomes a rider or takes ground lessons, they are asked to become partners with one of our horses and to embark on a journey that will be unforgettable.

 

Our center, which is a member of PATH Intl (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International), offers therapeutic horseback riding to individuals with physical, emotional and intellectual disabilities. Or, more appropriately, we teach people who have a disability how to ride a horse (for our non-riders, we teach them how to take care of horses) and it just so happens that each rider also receives therapeutic advantages from being on and around the horse.

 

Research shows that horseback riding moves the rider’s body in a manner similar to a human gait, thus helping improve flexibility, balance and muscular strength. Other benefits include:

 

We invite you out to our center to experience in person exactly what we do. You’ll get an opportunity to see our facilities, students, horses, instructors, and volunteers. And we’re pretty sure you’ll want to come back.
