Caledon Equestrian School Pegasus Program
May 26, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until June 2, 2019
The Pegasus Program is a riding program for special needs children and adults. Run by our certified therapeutic riding instructor Elaine Brooks, we work with kids and adults with all sorts of special needs.
Therapeutic riding has been proven over the years to have tremendous effects on physically and mentally challenged students. The movement of the horse mimics the movement of the human body. This allows the muscles to be worked as if the child was walking. The movement of the horse also develops balance and co-ordination.
Apart from the therapy, the bond that forms between the horse and rider, and the social interaction with the volunteers, can bring great benefits to the mind and the spirit.
The Pegasus Program runs seasonally in the fall and spring for 12 weeks each session. Its success is largely due to the wonderful dedicated volunteers who come every week. If you are interested in a fantastic volunteer opportunity, please let us know – we would love to have you join us!
