Equine Assisted Programs
A person with a physical, cognitive or emotional special need can find interactions with horses to be highly rewarding. For example, the rhythmic motion of a horse can help riders with physical needs show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength. Research shows that a large group of people with various physical issues and disabilities across all ages can benefit greatly, both physically and emotionally, from equine assisted activities. The relationship formed between human and equine can also lead to increased self confidence and self esteem for those individuals with emotional and cognitive challenges.
Interested participants should download our Participant Handbook. This document will answer many questions about available programs and the registration process. Once this has been submitted, Great Oak staff will reach you to schedule a screening.
Great Oak strives to make our services available to all participants whose application for registration is accepted but cannot afford full tuition. Great Oak fulfills this mission through the generosity of our supporters.
