Benefits of therapeutic riding and horsemanship include increased core strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, sensory integration, circulation, fine and gross motor function, confidence, independence and communication skills. EAAT has been proven beneficial for a variety of special needs, including Autism, PTSD, Stroke/CVA, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Down Syndrome, ADD/ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Injury, Chromosomal Disorders, Developmental Delay and Socioemotional/Behavioral issues. It takes a lot of time and resources to provide quality care for our horses, including feeding, hoof trimming, trailering, veterinary care, training and housing. However, what our equine members provide for us and our riders is priceless. Support the Center for Adaptive Riding in continuing to provide excellence in equine-assisted activities and quality care to their horses by choosing a donation level that suits you.
