Mission Statement

Sonrisas Trails Provides therapy to persons with physical, mental and emotional challenges through a carefully structured program of equine activities.

Description

Sonrisas offers therapeutic horseback riding to those with physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Therapeutic riding involves teaching the rider the necessary skills and techniques required to ride a horse as independently as possible. The emphasis is not on ly on the physical benefits of riding, but also on the development of the relationship between the rider and the horse. The self-discipline required to understand and control the horse instills a sense of responsibility and enhances task concentration in the rider. The autonomy associated with independently riding a horse also serves to promote the rider's self-esteem and positive body image. Sonrisas means smiles in Spanish. It reflects the joy that is seen on the faces of our riders when they have accomplished something new, and the excitement of rider and staff alike when important goals are met.
