Review for Victory Reins Therapeutic Riding Center, Peotone, IL, USA
Indian Oaks Academy, a residential treatment center for youth in Manteno, Illinois, has partnered with Victory Reins Therapeutic Riding Center since December, 2017. They focus on building selff-esteem, concentration, relaxation, etc. Sandy Michalewicz, founder and director of Victory Reins, commented on the progress that can be made from equine therapy, noting that “getting on a horse empowers kids…offers them a sense of freedom.” The youth at IOA not only learn to ride, but groom, turn out, clean stalls, feed, and even bathe the horses. Their equine therapy has served our youth well. We strongly recommend Victory Reins as an organization, and as a place of healing!
