Pony experiences, activities and therapy information: ( For Little Buckaroos)

We offer several different programs and experiences with the ponies for littler buckaroos. (Adults, although you can not ride a small pony... we do offer unmounted and ground sessions with similar benefits!

EXPERIENCE AND INTERACT:

This experience gives children the opportunity to pet and ride a pony, for most it will be their first time. Children who ride ponies create balance, develops motor function, cognitive skills and builds core strength.  These riding experiences are shorter and more of an introductory into the world of ponies.

EQUINE -ASSISTED ACTIVITIES:  children can enjoy differenty types of activties; such as therapeutic riding, mounted or ground activities, grooming,  stable management, horsemanship, etc., in which the center’s participants, volunteers, instructors and equines are involved in a manner that increases the safety of and benefit to the participant. The goal of the activity should be related to an equestrian skill.

EQUINE- ASSISTED THERAPY:  involves a physical, occupational, or speech therapist, or their licensed assistant, with specific training in hippotherapy. These therapists use the equine (pony) as a "treatment strategy" during a portion of the therapy session, and the goal of treatment is to improve the client's function.  ** At this time we will work with your current therapist during this session.
