Using horses in therapy and education
“The center,” said Executive Director Susan Ferro, “strives to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children and adults with special needs through the use of the horse in therapy and education.”
Studies show that therapeutic riding improves physical health, enhances coordination and strengthens core muscles.
Winslow’s programs are designed to meet the needs of individuals with physical disabilities, learning difficulties and communication disorders as well as social, emotional and stress related issues.
With more than 20 therapy horses, Winslow serves over more than riders with special needs each year.
