Ride horses, Have fun, Gain Confidence, Make New Friends, and Learn New Skills!
In this program children ages 3 and up learn equestrian skills while they gain therapeutic benefits. Lessons guide the students by giving special attention to their strengths while making adaptations to the their unique needs.
This is an very empowering experience.
Students receive a variety of therapeutic benefits such as:
improved communication skills,
agility, balance, coordination
and self confidence all while having lots of fun!
At Blazing Prairie Stars, all our lessons are individualized and one on one, not large groups.
We also have staff therapists who consult with the riding instructor on methods of incorporating goals and maximizing therapeutic benefits.
