Hearts, Hands, and Hope, Together Changing Lives
4371 Arthur Rd
Our vision is to increase the quality of life for people with special needs through the use of horses.
We believe that horses provide recreational and therapeutic benefits to persons with special needs.
We believe that what happens between a horse and its rider is often a magical, and sometimes unexplainable, experience.
We believe we can improve the strength, balance, mobility and outlook on life through horsemenship.
We believe the world looks different on a horse.
It is the sincere pleasure of Rides & Reins Therapeutic Riding Center to provide riders with developmental, emotional and physical needs the experience of relaxation thru horseback riding. The walking gait of the horse simulates the movement of a healthy person’s pelvis when walking on two legs. During a therapeutic riding session, this action relaxes and stimulates unused muscles while building muscle tone, improving balance, coordination and joint mobility.
Our volunteers and instructors use the horse’s movement to stimulate specific neuromuscular reactions. For riders with emotional disorders, horseback riding lessons help improve concentration, increase confidence, patience and self esteem. A sense of achievement is also an important emotional milestone for our riders, and enhances the motivation toward recovery and further therapy.
Bonds are established between horse and rider, which can lead to continued self confidence, patients and comfort. We are proud to offer such a distinct and natural method of therapy for children of all ages. The experience of working with an equine is one that can’t be matched, and we are thankful and proud of the riders who have benefited from our program and facility.
At Rides & Reins TEC Inc, we believe in the ability of our horses to help clients with emotional, and physical needs. The relaxation of horseback riding can strengthen muscles and improve balance and coordination.
