Horseback-riding offers a new visual perspective of the world.
It encourages independence and the control of one’s own destiny.
Therapeutic riding offers physical, emotional and cognitive rewards.
Most of the beneficiaries in the AMADO programme do not have the opportunity or are not able to
participate in traditional recreational and sports activities. Riding and being around horses offers a chance to
be successful at a unique activity that others in their community can only dream of.
This “I can“-attitude governs all aspects of daily life.
Individuals with mobility impairments benefit from the three-dimensional gait of riding, which closely simulates human walking movements. This strengthens the core, improves flexibility and increases the ability to move independently.
Emotional and cognitive capacity is enhanced by an increase in self-control, patience and concentration as they learn to guide the therapy horse. By succeeding at the task, the rider’s self-esteem rockets.
̽When a child pleads with her abuser to stop, he does not listen. But when she whispers “stop” into the ear of a 400kg horse, he listens. And the little girl grows strong.
