Hands and Hearts for Horses provides unique therapeutic services to individuals with a variety of special needs. Our clients often have limited access to specialized physical activities and limited resources. The populations we serve include, but are not limited to, individuals with autism spectrum disorder (including Asperger syndrome), Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injuries. Therapeutic riding is documented to help improve gross and fine motor skills, cognitive abilities and general well-being. We often hear from parents and teachers that riders become stronger both physically and mentally and are able to be more successful in day-to-day functioning as a result of therapeutic riding lessons.
