Why Horses?

The horses 4 beat walk produces a 3-dimensional movement. While on a horse's back the movement transfers to the rider's pelvis, spine, and trunk. This movement simulates the correct walking pattern of the human gait and is used as a therapeutic modality for improving balance, coordination, and strength. Also, the human-equine environment creates an opportunity of enhanced empowerment, confidence, self-esteem and education.
