What is Therapeutic Riding?

Therapeutic riding is horseback riding for the disabled - it combines equestrian techniques with concepts of physical therapy to teach the disabled rider traditional horsemanship skills and improve his physical ability.  Each step a horse takes requires the rider to use his muscles to maintain balance and his mind to control the horse.  Currently there are 99 therapeutic riding centers in California and Nevada and more than 35,000 disabled equestrians in the United States.
