Therapeutic and special needs
A truly unique experience
Here at Lynch Farm we cater for riders with special needs covering a wide range of conditions.
“Horses as vehicles for rehabilitation, therapy and equine facilitated learning.”
These range from Autism, Tourettes Syndrome, Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and a range of other conditions including recovering Stroke Victims.
Animal therapy engages children and adults who have a variety of illnesses and disabilities. The animals traditionally include dogs, cats, talking birds, and horses. Hippotherapy, a form of Equine Assisted Therapy, is gaining ground as an effective way to increase the physical and emotional health of children with cerebral palsy (CP). It has the potential to help the child develop physical strength and endurance and increase balance. It can also improve the child’s communication skills as they interact with the horse and the therapist and build their overall sense of confidence and well-being.
