THERAPEUTIC/ ADAPTIVE RIDING:
This is the biggest and oldest part of HALTER. In this, a certified instructor with the help of the volunteers, teaches riding and provides social- emotional learning while having fun. The skills may range from getting control of your body while on a horse to posting independently at a trot. Individual goals are set for each rider.
In this program, a physical, occupational or speech therapist uses the horse as a tool to reach specific therapy goals. This is run in collaboration with Spartanburg Regional Hospital Systems.
