Therapeutic riding is an equine-assisted activity for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being of individuals with disabilities.  Riding has many benefits including (but not limited to):

  • development and improvement of balance & coordination 
  • mobilization of trunk & pelvis
  • improvement of muscle tone & strength
  • prevention of contractures
  • increased confidence & self-esteem
  • promotion of independence
  • increased concentration, motivation & patience
  • improved learning skills
  • improvement of social integration
  • access to recreation, sport and/or competition
  • a sense of control that might not otherwise be felt in everyday life

TEAD offers therapeutic riding lessons mornings, afternoons and evenings, 6 days a week, all year long.  All our instructors are nationally certified, and our horses were chosen for their temperament and suitability to therapeutic work.

Lessons are purchased for an 8, 10, or 12 week-long session, with one lesson per week.  Currently we do not offer one-off classes.
