Therapeutic riding lessons provide individuals with disabilities and special needs the opportunity to ride horses.
Lessons are taught by riding instructors certified through CanTRA, PATH International and/or OEF. Instructors adapt their teaching methods and equipment to each student. The focus of lessons is to develop riding specific skills and play mounted games, while in a safe accessible leisure setting. The goal is to have the student control or influence the horse’s movement, speed, and direction by using verbal (or adapted) cues, reins, and/or physical cues.
