Therapeutic Horseback Riding
Students at The Children's Center participate in therapeutic horseback riding throughout the school year at Riverwood Therapeutic Riding Center in Tobaccoville. The children are lead on the horse by a volunteer and are accompanied by side walkers to assist them with riding the horse and completing activities.
Riverwood provides quality, professional equine assisted activities for both children and adults with special needs. Equine assisted activities help to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination and motor development as well as emotional well-being.
