Why Choose Therapeutic Riding?
The movement of the horse/pony stimulates the rider's vestibular system as it responds to balance signals, which sends the signals through the nervous system to the muscles for movement. This system not only controls the muscles for balance, but all voluntary and some involuntary movement of the body. These include speech, walking, sitting up, balance recovery, and many other gross and fine motor skills. Therefore strengthening not only body, but also mind.
