The Benefits

Adaptive riding utilizes horses to enhance the well-being of individuals with disabilities across multiple domains. The unique movement of the horse mimics human gait, engaging riders’ posture, balance, and reflexes, while the horse’s warmth further aids therapeutic benefits. This approach fosters improvements in balance, muscle symmetry, motor function, coordination, and posture.

Many studies have investigated the psychological impacts of therapeutic horseback riding, revealing significant enhancements in areas like achievement, coping skills, self-efficacy, confidence, and anger management. Increased social motivation and engagement, linked to the multisensory experience of riding and the perception of reward, have been observed.
