Since 1974, Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center’s mission is to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children and adults with disabilities and/or special needs through the use of the horse in therapy and education. We provide weekly therapeutic horseback riding lessons as well as a number of programs that incorporate therapeutic riding.
Studies show and we believe that therapeutic riding improves physical health, strengthens core muscles and coordination. It also provides the rider with a sense of accomplishment and control which increase self-esteem. In all our programming, our horses provide a joyful way to experience physical, cognitive and emotional growth and our trained and caring staff and volunteers create a positive environment for learning always emphasizing the capabilities of each rider.
