Situation

Horseriding supports mobility, enables the rider to become more relaxed and supple. Children with disabilities discover a new freedom in movement and become more confident, consequently releasing their inner tensions.

Solution

Students benefiting from horseriding, begin to intertact and bond with their hors. This results in commencing to communicate with their friends, families and staff. This programme has been piloted and it is vital that horse-riding project becomes a weekly norm. Evidence has shown that animal therapy has encouraged major developments where other therapies have failed.
