PEGASUS THERAPEUTIC RIDING

Description

Pegasus Therapeutic Riding provides equine assisted activities and therapies to children and aadults with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities.

New Canaan Mounted Troop in New Canaan, CT

Ox Ridge Hunt Club in Darien, CT

Kelsey Farm in Greenwich, CT

Fox Hill Farm in Pleasantville, NY



Therapeutic riding horses are chosen for their smooth, rhythmic, even gait and calm, compassionate temperament. In therapeutic riding, the horse's motion massages the rider's muscles. As the horse literally walks for the rider, a three-dimensional movement is achieved. Just as in walking, the pelvic region is moved forward diagonally (left/right or right/left); up and down and side to side, helping spastic muscles relax, and challenging muscles not ordinarily used, in ways that other therapies cannot reproduce.
