Therapeutic Riding offers a unique and challenging opportunity for those with limitations to be empowered with a sense of pride, accomplishment and independence. The ability to communicate with and control a 1,200 pound animal can take confidence to great heights. Therapeutic Riding is structured so that each rider increases his or her equestrian abilities at a unique pace to achieve the greatest capability. Many riders excel to become proficient and independent horsemen. Multiple disciplines are taught: English Equitation, Western Equitation, Dressage and Trail. Summer programs are available that explore polo and gymkhana games.
Therapeutic riding differs from hippotherapy in that Vinceremos instructors teach equestrian skills in the therapeutic environment. Prior to the first lesson, your instructor will go over the rider's file to identify appropriate goals: communication, following instructions and self-control. Then, from the first lesson, we will develop a personal plan to support the rider in meeting these goals and setting new ones.
Therapeutic Riding at Vinceremos is an opportunity for challenge and success. The rider will be challenged to reach new heights in areas of movement, communication and capability, and be supported by both our two-legged and four-legged staff along the way. Reaching a goal, meeting a new milestone or winning a ribbon is a joyous occasion for everyone at Vinceremos. We celebrate every victory!
