Therapeutic Riding Center...
Fallowfield Stables ("Horses with Heart" Therapy)
Fallowfield, in conjunction with "Horses with Heart Therapeutic Riding Center", offers
sessions in both Therapeutic Riding and Hippotherapy.
Hippotherapy is a form of health treatment with the help of a horse. Hippotherapy is not
a riding lesson; but a 30-minute private riding session with our exercise physiologist,
therapeutic riding instructor and side walkers. Specialized physical therapy techniques
and exercises are incorporated into the ride to improve balance, coordination and motor
Therapeutic Riding differs from hippotherapy
in that its purpose is to teach basic horsemanship
and riding skills to disabled persons.
Like hippotherapy, the benefits include balance,
coordination, improved posture and increased
muscle tone. Therapeutic riding also promotes
positive emotional and mental skills; as well as the
physical benefits. The ability to focus attention and
follow directions improves greatly while learning horsemanship
and developing a bond with the horse.
We offer a specialized mounting area and horses trained
specifically for use as therapeutic animals.
