Publisher's Summary

A person with a disability is only limited if they allow themselves to be. Where doctors’ methods fail, horses are there to help provide results. Equine therapeutic riding (commonly called horse therapy) is a fairly new form of therapy designed for people of all ages who live with any number of both physical and mental impairments.

In its simplest sense, riding forces the human body to mimic the movement patterns of the horse’s pelvis, which in turn adds to their own range of movement while away from the barn. The results of therapy riding visibly increase with each passing week. This guide explains the processes that take place at the therapy barn and the results that can be seen in the riders afterwards, all written from the point of view of a current horse therapy volunteer. 

Here’s what you’ll learn by reading this guide:

  • Eligibility requirements for riders
  • Explanations behind the reason that equine therapy works
  • How to become a volunteer, which is a necessary component of every therapeutic riding program
  • The positions open to volunteers
  • Tips on handling the horses
  • The equipment used during lessons
  • The variety of exercises and activities utilized in each lesson
  • The role of the volunteers in the improvement of the riders
  • The visible/audible benefits of therapy riding
  • The emotional impact of therapy riding on the volunteers

Equine therapy is a life-changing experience for everyone involved. There’s plenty more to learn in these pages before signing up to be a volunteer yourself!

so basic

if you have never met a horse before then read this.... if you have never met a horse before then it's highly unlikely you will want to run a therapy barn... literally the worst thing i ever did was waste time on this ... i get it we can all learn something from any thing including how not to do things but seriously i feel like asking for a refund from audible as i don't feel it was even as described!! highly disappointed.
