Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Talbot Special Riders Inc. provides physical and emotional therapy to individuals using horses.
Our curriculum is adjusted to the individual needs/requirements and/or capabilities of our patients. Our goal is not to turn out great equestrians, but to build confidence, self esteem, and a sense of accomplishment. Our therapy also increases their attention span and develops their ability to take, understand and follow directions. We work on coordination and spatial relationships, as well as Stretching and strengthening exercises.
Thus individuals can better realize their potential and find a place in our society in which to lead a productive life. We emphasize abilities not disabilities!
Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Public Service
Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT).Our organization relies on other organization(s) for the care and shelter of equines involved in our programs.
