How Therapeutic Horse Riding Can Help Your Child in the Yuba-Sutter Area, California

Therapeutic horse riding by Able Riders is a scheme that is aimed at helping children with physical and/or Learning Disabilities

Providing therapeutic horse riding lessons is a welcome alternative to many parents who would rather avoid more traditional forms of treatment for their children. The scheme is supported by the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Association, who see the many benefits from therapeutic horse riding. Some of the noted benefits that are mentioned on the web site are improved balance, more relaxed muscles and more focus and patience.

Children who are eligible to participate in the Able Riders therapeutic horse riding scheme are those who suffer from Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Learning Disabilities and many other disorders. Riding lessons take place on a weekly basis and are tailored to children's individual needs and abilities.

Able Riders is regularly seeking new volunteers who can spare some extra time each week to help make a difference in children's lives. Volunteers can choose how involved they want to be. They can lead the horses or take part in fundraising events. It is not necessary for volunteers to have a great deal of experience with horses or special needs children. But what is required is drive and the determination to make a difference in the lives of special needs children.

Horses are hand picked to participate in the Able Riders programme. They must have a gentle disposition to be allowed to take part in the scheme. The horses are then trained so that they can adapt to the different needs of special needs children. Children who ride these specially trained can feel soothed and relaxed during and after the lesson.

If you would like your child to take part, riders and volunteers meet each Tuesday evening at the Butte Star Ranch and Equestrian Centre at 8807 South Butte Road, Sutter. The first riding lesson begins at 5:30pm. Each lesson is limited to just four riders. This allows volunteers to spend more time with each child providing 1-1 instruction and support. It is also safer to limit the lessons to four riders, as each child could need up to three volunteers to ensure that they are safe during their lesson. For more information you can call Able Riders at (530) 751-9526 or e-mail them at ableriders@familysoup.org
