The benefits of therapeutic horseback riding can be seen in our program. We are an equine(horse)-assisted therapy center for
children and adults with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities, serving the Red River/Texoma Region of North Texas and South-Eastern Oklahoma.
We have had numerous students over the years, all ages 3 to 65+ years old,
from all walks of life, and many different issues or disabilities. Our certified
instructors challenge each student to learn something new every time they come,
whether it is learning to brush and saddle their horse or practicing posting to
build balance and strength.
There are many benefits of therapeutic horseback riding for those with and
without special needs. Many beyond just the physical benefits. Riders improve
their self-esteem, focus and independence, as well as social interaction, even for non-verbal students while interacting with trained
volunteers, professional certified instructors, specially trained Physical Therapists and other riders.
The entire experience is encouraged, including horse care; brushing,
saddling or unsaddling the horse can contribute to the building of a strong
relationship between horse and rider.
The four primary areas that can be influenced by therapeutic riding:
Triple H has historically offered a variety of programs including private and group lessons, Equine-assisted Physical Therapy, camps
and even customized sessions for specific organizations and groups. Check out our new website at Divine Equine for current programs!
