More about 7 Star Therapeutic Riding Center
Enhancing Lives Through Equine Assisted Therapy: Equine-assisted therapy provides an alternative form of therapy that cannot be obtained through conventional therapy. The gait of the horse mimics that of a human. Through the motion of the horse, clients develop core muscle strength, and stimulation of brain patterns, which improves balance and coordination. Clients learn to concentrate and focus on riding, which helps with sequencing, and learning to follow oral instructions.
Our Vision: To facilitate healing of the mind, body, and spirit through the grace and strength of the horse.
