Meet our Horses

Because horses are also a true reflection of ourselves, they mirror our behaviour. Those with emotional or behavioral issues are able to learn how their actions affect others as the horses reflect their behavior.

The horses in the LTRA program are matched to the ability and special needs of each individual. When riding a horse, the muscle movement is the same as when walking. So through riding, those with physical injuries such as paralysis or stroke benefit from a balanced workout with symmetrical movement.
