Horseback riding has long been recognized as a therapeutic activity. The rhythmic movement of the horse helps to relax muscles and improve flexibility, while the fresh air and outdoor setting can help to reduce stress and promote well-being.
On The Ball has partnered with Wynbrook Equestrian Centre to add hippotherapy as another tool to help our little clients achieve their therapeutic goal. Our therapists work with Wybrook's experienced instructor to provide a comprehensive treatment plan with specific goals centered around the client's needs.
Therapeutic riding can help to improve balance, coordination and motor skills, as well as provide a sense of achievement and confidence.
For many riders, it is also an enjoyable social activity that helps to build friendships and community connections.
