Persons with Developmental Disabilities
We have structured varying games and patterns that develop muscle tone, balance, and initiates mental stimulation. This is achieved through assorted exercises that soothe the mind and build confidence.
The sessions are designed with each person's individual needs in mind. Our qualified leaders present calm and detailed direction.
One parent or guardian is required to be the side-walker to assist in notifying stress triggers and to give an extra boost of confidence to the riders.
Not all sessions will be riding sessions. Some of the best bonding can happen on the ground!
We LOVE our veterans as riders and volunteers!
Equine Assisted Therapy has shown to be effective in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorders and other chronic mental illnesses.
Blue Skies is here to assist you with your individual needs as a rider.
