This is a therapeutic riding program which uses equine-assisted activities for the purpose of contributing positively to cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with disabilities. Therapeutic riding provides benefits in the areas of therapy, education sport and recreation & leisure. It is in essence teaching riding to people with special needs being aware of the therapeutic benefit.
Youth Development Riding
Whilst we are a mass participation program, Shumbashaba recognizes the desire of many of the youth to learn to ride and as a result we have offer riding lessons to a growing number of youngsters who have come through our ground-based equine assisted life skills programs and participated in our Horse Appreciation programme thereby having earned their “ticket to ride”.
