Equest - Therapeutic Horsemanship| 5mins
Director: Fonya Mondell | Producer: Jason Cirone
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: United States
Equest delivers the benefits of equine therapy to north Texas children and adults with a range of disabilities and special needs. Equest was the first therapeutic center in Texas providing a variety of equine-assisted programs to over 150 clients weekly. The physical and emotional accomplishments that the clients achieve are a direct result of the interaction and rhythmic motion that equine therapy provides. Riding a horse moves the body in a manner similar to a human gait, allowing riders with physical needs to realize improvement in muscle tone, strength, flexibility, and balance. Additionally, the horse therapy programs allow riders to achieve physical, cognitive, social, and emotional developments resulting in improved self-esteem, concentration, and independence.
