Inspire Participants must be a minimum age of 10 years old for all programming. Inspire focuses on our mission to serve teens and adults with life challenges thru equine assisted services.
Balance, coordination and muscle tone improve through exercises done on horseback. Psychological benefits include increased independence, motivation and self-control. Vocabulary development and sequential learning contribute to cognitive gains, and self-esteem soars as the riders learn to control their mounts.
Driving is an equine activity for people with various disabilities, in which the participant sits in a cart, pulled by a horse and learns the skills necessary to drive a horse. Driving is available for any participant who is interested in learning this skill, and also offers further independence and opportunity to participants who are unable or uninterested in riding for various reasons.
Free programs for disabled veterans and first responders. Participants can choose from carriage driving, horsemanship (unmounted), or equine facilitated learning in personal development.
Equine-Facilitated Learning is an experiential learning approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional, and personal goals through equine-assisted activities. This experiential approach integrates horse-human interaction that is guided by a planned learning experience to meet the identified goals or desires of the participant(s). Simply put, EFL is where we take individuals who want to help improve their life skills out to work with the horses. Through working with horses and through this process of building relationships and connections they can better learn how they relate to themselves, each other, and their environment.
Inspire Equine Therapy program partners with senior living communities to provide equine assisted activities to address the unique needs of our county’s senior citizens who may or may not be in residential care, rehab facilities, or other long-term care settings. Equine assisted services can help seniors reconnect with memories, improve fine motor function and provides a fun new opportunity for social interaction!
