Our sessions are conducted under the supervision of an accredited RDA coach with the assistance of trained volunteers. We structure our sessions to make use of mounted games and activities designed to encourage participation and the development of individual abilities.
Therapeutic riding begins with gentle exercises performed on horseback. These exercises include such things as leaning forward to pat the horse's neck, leaning backwards to pat the horse's rump and twisting left and right in the saddle. Each rider is assisted by 'side walkers' who make sure that they remain secure in the saddle while performing the exercises.
