Mission Statement

Connections Therapeutic Riding Center (CTRC) is a specialty facility that provides children with autism the specialized care that they need to integrate and function in every day society. CTRC uniquely cultivates a safe and nurturing learning community that positively impacts integral relationships between the child, the family and the horses.

Description

At Connections, our goal is to assist riders, in the most honoring fashion, to attain new levels of communication, coping strategies, life skills and strategies that, along with core strength, balance and control provide individuals with an opportunity to discern and internalize a new orientation. Self regulation and motivation surface as individuals realize both their control over and ability to participate in activities.

In every session, right/left, top/bottom and front/back regions of the brain are addressed through structured exercises and movement of the horse--which is the closest gait to a human’s gait --providing deep, global changes and integration.
