Horseback Riding

The pleasure and sense of accomplishment that accompanies the sport of horseback riding has proven to be just the beginning of the benefits for children with disabilities.

Research has shown that riding a horse helps a child’s flexibility, balance and muscle strength. In addition, the rider experiences growth in self esteem, confidence and independence. The NIS program, established in 2002, provides a program adapted to meet the physical and emotional needs of each participating child.

  • Designed for NIS preschoolers with disabilities to support developmental growth.
  • Program takes place at a local stable.
  • Program offered on weekday afternoons for 6 consecutive weeks.
