Sensory riding and handling
This experience is suited to those wishing to improve their physical, emotional and social state.
This equine facilitated activity can improve mental health, and help tackle sensory integration disorder.
Sensory riding and handling promotes and practices interaction with horses to assist individuals with emotional and mental disabilities, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and mood disorder, those with behavioural problems and those going through life changes.
Riding provides physiotherapy on the move - the warmth and three dimensional movement of the horse is transmitted through the body of the rider helping them to relax, and strengthen core muscles, enabling the rider to become stronger and more supple.
Many riders also find that riding helps improve their posture, balance and coordination. Many referrals are given from medical professionals to improve health and well-being.
