Review for Naples Therapeutic Riding Center, Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Naples Equestrian Challenge is so amazing. NEC works with Special Needs Children and Adults working with horses on occupational type skills. the child or adult is supported by 2 sidewalker (volunteers) one volunteer on each side of the horse and a leader to assist the child with the horse. It takes alot of dedication for the the child and manpower of voluteers. Seeing a Special Needs child face light up when they see the horse and seeing the parent face light up when these kids are in a lesson keeps the volunteers coming back for more. The child or adult progresses so .. working on balance skills in the saddle, verbal and directional skills, reinning the horse where to go. Besides being so important to the child and adult we work with building their skills and confidence in themselves, it is heart warming in these times to meet so many volunteers dedicated to this program to helping these kids and adults. Everyday I am there it fills me with happiness seeing these how happy it makes these kids and the volunteers and horses who work with them.

working with our special needs children and adults with the horses, seeing their skills progress and the happiness it brings them.

buy more land for the horses and added facilities to help more special needs children and adults.
