Stirrups 'n Strides Therapeutic Riding Center provides therapy to students at their 7-acre facility on the Hillcrest campus. Because horseback riding moves the student's body in a manner similar to a human gait, students with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance, posture and muscle strength. It has also been proven to affect psychological, cognitive, behavioral and communication functions for students of all ages. The special relationship formed between horse and student often leads to increased confidence, patience, self-esteem, independence and acceptance. Visit Stirrups and Strides web site here.
