At Dream On Curls Riding Center ~
We focus on what our riders CAN do, NOT on what they can't !
Therapeutic riding uses equine assisted
activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the emotional,
cognitive, physical, and social well being of individuals with disabilities.
These equine activities have been shown to be beneficial to the child with
physical or developmental challenges while presenting itself in a fun rewarding
manner. Studies show that therapeutic riding can increase flexibility, balance,
coordination, memory, sequencing, attention, and body awareness. All of this can
be accomplished while the child is having fun!

programs for a number of special needs children and young adults:
v Cerebral Palsy
v Autism Spectrum Disorder
