Programs: Equi-Ed offers therapeutic riding, vaulting, horsemanship and competition opportunities to its students.
I like going to Equi-Ed to learn horse riding skills and vaulting skills. They let me volunteer by having me help do barn activities. This experience helps me with my physical balance and personal confidence. My dream is to participate in competitions.
This therapeutic riding program is so important to people with disabilities, like me. I'm a paraplegic that has been in a wheelchair since 1980, from a car accident. I used to ride horses when I was a kid and loved it! This program not only allows me to enjoy being on a horse, but insures a safe and enjoyable riding environment.
Therapeutic riding at Equi-Ed, not only lifts my spirits, I get health benefits too!
