Introduction to Therapeutic Horseback Riding

Therapeutic horseback riding is widely accepted as a useful method of improving the physical
and/or mental well-being of clients suffering from a wide range of disabilities. The program
provides an opportunity for invigorating exercise and recreation that gives the rider a sense
of achievement and self-worth in a safe and controlled environment.

Potential benefits to clients include improved balance and coordination, increased confidence
and self-esteem, increased attention span, all of which provides the rider with a measure of
independence based on a unique exercise program designed to be challenging and enjoyable.

To learn more about the program as a client or to volunteer please consult the Errington
Therapeutic Riding Association (ETRA) web site at ETRA.ca or email: etrainfo@shaw.ca.
