It's important to realize that the games and activities that we provide during lessons do not replace riding instruction. In fact, these games and activities serve to enhance the learning of riding skills.
In general, therapeutic riding lessons can be taught in two formats - group or individual. Understanding the key differences between the two is important for determining the best type of lesson for each rider.
All of our therapeutic riding lessons at Hilltop Horizons Therapeutic Equestrian Center are taught by a PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor, but what does this really mean? What about this certification allows them to be effective attributes to the therapeutic riding industry?
Therapeutic riding is an adaptable and creative industry that thrives on diversity and new challenges. We are excited to find new ways to help each rider overcome their individual obstacles in life, in a safe and fun environment.
The entire experience, from horses… to riders… to other volunteers and staff, has a therapeutic quality that can’t be matched in any other setting. There is a place for everyone at our center if you just reach out and look for it.
