" Therapeutic Horseback riding is the use of horses and equine-assisted activities in order to achieve goals that enhance physical, emotional, social, cognitive, behavioural and educational skills for people who have disabilities and those with learning problems and social problems. Equine movement offers well-modulated sensory input to vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile and visual channels. During therapeutic riding, we are able to positively influence the following systems: postural, sensory, motor, movement grading, respiratory control, sensory integration and attentional skills. "

Diana Coetzer, Hippotherapist

" Our learners have benefited a lot from horse riding. Horse riding gives a chance to inactive muscles to experience movement. It also has psychological benefits as learners interact in class and it raises their self-esteem. "
