Description & Services
Description of service(s) Cavalier Riding Club- Therapeutic Riding for the Disabled is a program that has been in operation for the better part of 26 years. CRC, a non-profit organization, was the brainchild of Linda Clark with a friend, Ann Murray, as well with a few other people. What makes CRC special is that we not only offer a type of therapy, , but we also teach our riders how to ride, thus the term therapeutic riding. Hippotherapy means using the horse's movements, which are "variable, rhythmic and repetitive" (American Hippotherapy Association) and this mimics the pelvic movement of a walking person. This is very beneficial for someone who is confined to a wheelchair, as their trunk muscles aren't very developed, so this is but one benefit of using a horse in therapy.
