Abstract

TLC Equine Therapy is an equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) program.  The program benefits of EAAT are as numerous as the types of disabilities and conditions that participants present.

Our horses are the four legged therapists. URL Submit for free Research shows that people who participate in equine assisted activities can experience physical, emotional, and mental rewards.  A sense of independence found while working with equines;  as the rider’s skills increase, so does their self esteem and general well being.

The program originally started at Stonewall Schools in 2009. Since then the program has grown to service the surrounding communities.  The program is designed to service children and adults with physical, cognitive, and/or emotional disabilities.
