EQUINE ASSISTED SERVICES

EQUINE ASSISTED SERVICES
HORSEMANSHIP | RIDING LESSONS

With safety at the forefront, Special Spirit (SSI) strives to promote the overall health and well-being of each adaptive and able-bodies participant.

 

Utilizing PATH and EAGALA protocols, activities and procedures, our team is committed to providing and ensuring the physical, emotional and mental benefits of Equine Assisted Services. 

Understanding the holistic benefits and connection of horseback riding, SSI certified riding instructors also teach individual and group horseback riding lessons and foundational horsemanship training.

Establishing a solid understanding of horse behavior, horse language, basic anatomy, tack, and grooming, our students are encouraged and provided the opportunity for a deeper horse/ human connection.


Each student is assessed and evaluated for their unique needs, goals and desires and individualized lesson plans are devised and revised to support these goals.

"Donovan suffers from type 1 diabetes and autism spectrum disorder. 
At first we were not sure if being around horses would be a good idea or if he would even enjoy it, but he proved us wrong. Since the first time he rode, he has had a smile of joy every time we come to the ranch. 

Donovan has trouble using his hands for some tasks, walking properly, and social skills. In just a few months he is learning how to finally tie his shoes, use his hands for more tasks, and is walking better. Donovan does not like making eye-contact or having conversations with people, but when he's riding he will look at you and answer when he is being asked too. Donovan loves caring for the horses but his favorite thing is trotting on the horses!  He's the happiest little boy when he knows we're going to the ranch to ride, especially on Pumpkin. Thanks to Miss Eva and Special Spirit's time, patience, and support we have gone one step further in changing Donovan's life."

- JACKIE, DONOVAN'S MOM
