Horse Therapy Improves Quality Of Life For Disabled
Riding a horse is a strenuous activity. The Therapeutic Equestrian Center (TEC) helps people with disabilities through horseback riding. For people with disabilities, especially those who can’t walk, riding a horse gives them independence while building their physical strength. Not only is it physically beneficial, but it also helps break mental and emotional barriers. Interacting with the horses, trainers and other members adds new found joy to their lives.
