Therapeutic Carriage Drive Program

Therapeutic Driving provides an alternative to riding for individuals with mental, physical or sensory disabilities who may not be able to ride a horse due to weight, inability to sit astride the horse or other reasons. Participants are able to interact with the horse and control the horse when driving, just as they would if they were riding. Therapeutic Driving provides more security for those who may be afraid of heights, have balance issues or low muscle tone. The movement that participants feel when driving is different than when riding and can be very soothing The benefits of Therapeutic Driving are numerous! It allows the participants to learn about horses, safety, tack, and equipment, as well as independent and teamwork, and helps to improve posture and balance, coordination, large and fine motor skills and what might be the most important for some–increased confidence and self-esteem!

 All sessions offered are done in a confidential atmosphere that respects individuals’ privacy.

If interested, or if you know anyone that would benefit from this form of equine-assisted therapy, please
