PostSubject: Equine Therapy in Australia?   Fri May 21, 2010 6:15 am

A friend of mine showed her this video of Lingh to her son, who has special needs, and was amazed at his reaction. Typically somewhat non-responsive, her son became very animated and enthusiastic at seeing “the dancing horse”.

It reminded me of all the wonderful work that’s being done with equine therapy to help individuals with developmental disabilities. Equine therapy is gaining ground as an accepted form of treatment that helps improve coordination, language and communication, self esteem, and so much more. In fact, for the first time, Dr. Tricia Wilmoth is presenting Equine Therapy as part of a therapeutic solution for the treatment of autism at the Autism Society’s 41st National Conference in July 2010. To support this work, I’m linking to the site for the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association http://www.narha.org/ .

Check out their Facebook Page, too: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/NARHA/116347621712730?ref=search&sid=1541809074.2740888072..1

Do you have similar organizations in Australia? Let me know!

PostSubject: Hi Westwind, I'm from Germany too and incidentally I am interested in everything which connects music with riding. Without knowing the exact theme, you can look up a nice collection of videos and music at pferdi tv.   Fri Mar 14, 2014 4:18 pm
