Freedom Reins:

San Diego Therapeutic Horsemanship is honored to provide therapeutic/recreational riding services to our wounded service members, including those with amputations, traumatic brain injuries, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Mounted lessons improve muscle tone, balance, and confidence.

Dismounted sessions work to build a direct connection with the horse, building trust and communication, and providing an opportunity for a sense of accomplishment.

 

Therapeutic Riding:

In therapeutic riding, riding lessons are provided by specially trained and certified instructors to individuals with cognitive, physical, or psychological diagnoses. Grooming and horse care are an important part of the instruction. Along with acquiring riding skills, participants often experience improvements in balance, strength, coordination, and cognitive/social skills.​
