- Cherish Children Learning|Equine Clinic
Cherish Children Equine|Hippotherapy Clinic has assisted children and youth with a vast array of academic, physical, and emotional challenges to improve their lives through the innate therapeutic qualities of a horse. Adapting each of our intervention programs to the needs of the participant, we address spectrum disorders such as Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and autism just to name a few. We use an evidence-based dyslexia curriculum from the Texas SR Hospital for Children which teaches dyslexic students in the way their brain processes information. Adding the natural movement of the horse to our curriculum engages the human body in such a way that simulates walking. It is not uncommon that a student who has mobility limitations before riding will show improvements in their ability to ambulate after their lesson due to the improved core strength and flexibility derived from riding their horse. Whereas physical therapy in a room may be a chore, riding becomes a treat. Students have an opportunity to work on life skills, concentration, reading, vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, auditory processing, following directions, and working with others through skills taught. Students are able to progress and increase in their knowledge of horsemanship skills through their participation in lessons. Students look forward to riding their special horse friend and working with Dr. Rebecka and their dedicated and loving volunteer each week during their session.
