About FAIR HILL THERAPEUTIC RIDING CENTER INC

Location:

PO BOX 396, WAYMART, PA 18472, US

Mission Statement

To provide Equine Assisted Services to area adults and children with disabilities, and to educate medical, equine, and local communities about the benefits of therapeutic riding.

Description

We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization providing Equine Assisted Services in therapeutic horsemanship to area children and adults with physical, cognitive, and social/emotional disabilities. Our services provides a platform to create a conduit between human and equine that will reward the participants with enthusiasm and excitement, while realizing multiple underlying achievements. The rhythmic movement of the horse moves the rider’s body in a manner similar to the human gait, developing muscle strength, balance, cognition and sensory-motor skills. FHTRC’s judgement-free environment promotes independence and self-advocacy. Helping the participant develop horsemanship skills, manifests into confidence-building, as well as physical and emotional strength.
