Short Desc. Kiddy Up Ranch is the only certified practitioner utalizing Horse Boy Method in the state of Florida.
Area Served Florida
Long Description Therapeutic riding is an emerging field in which horses are used as a tool for both physical therapy and emotional growth and learning. Many riders experience a connection to the horse that few sports or activities can create. For those riders who cannot walk, the horse is their vehicle of transport. Not only does this help raise their self-esteem but it also teaches them essential skills. It improves balance, creates trust and creates a friendship between rider and horse.The benefits of horseback riding are as numerous as the types of disabilities and conditions served. Research shows that students who participate in therapeutic riding can experience physical, emotional and mental rewards. Because horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the rider�s body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.For individuals with mental or emotional disabilities, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem. The sense of independence found on horseback benefits all who ride. The therapeutic qualities of horseback riding are recognized by many medical professionals, including the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Association. Individuals of all ages, with a wide range of physical, cognitive and/or emotional disabilities benefit from therapeutic horseback riding and other equine activities.
