Self-esteem, self discipline, motivation, and increased concentration.
Horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves a rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait. Riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in balance, flexibility, and muscle strength.
Riders who have emotional challenges can form a unique relationship with the horse that can lead to increased confidence and patients.
Event occurs on 09/28/2013 from 11:00 AM to 02:00 PM.
