TH02 - Session 2: Sustainability Through Diversity: Providing Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Experiences Within The Context of a Therapeutic Riding Program.

May 18, 2017 10:09am ‐ May 18, 2017 10:59am


Description

Four years ago EquiCenter began looking at ways to provide other related programming to expand our ability to serve our growing population of participants while exploring opportunities for center sustainability. We looked at our center with a set of fresh expectations and realized that there was other programming that we could offer and those lessons could help sustain not only the participants but also the center itself. In the intervening years we have added classes in therapeutic horticulture, farm-to-table culinary classes, adaptive yoga, and canine-assisted therapy. We also redesigned our unmounted equine-assisted learning classes to broaden and improve the scope of our horsemanship programming.
