Therapeutic Riding

There are many benefits to therapeutic riding; while teaching riding and horsemanship skills, life goals are achieved by the students. It is more than just a pony ride — our students learn leadership skills, decision-making, and experience improved communication & teamwork while sharpening their cognitive skills. At Renew, our certified professional staff considers the student’s life goals, and seeks to incorporate these goals into the riding lesson. Each lesson is specifically catered to various learning styles including the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. While learning to ride, the riders are challenged physically and experience improvements in balance, muscle coordination, endurance, and strength. Riding a horse is a holistic way to learn and to be challenged on many different levels. We celebrate our rider’s accomplishments each week as they develop and grow not just as riders, but as people.
