and Therapeutic Riding
Susanna Farms offers beginner to intermediate English and Western riding lessons.
Our goal is to help each rider gain a balanced seat and to ride with confidence at the walk, trot and canter. Each rider will progress at their own speed with safety and balance as our highest priority.
According to PATH International, the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, there are many different types of “equine assisted activities.” In its broadest sense, any interaction between a person and a horse is an equine assisted activity.
Gain stability and confidence
At Susanna Farms we focus on working with children and adults with a variety of physical, social, and emotional needs. All riders must go through an intake evaluation to determine if we are the right fit for your need and to create a plan based on individual needs and goals.
Learn to balance stress and anxiety.
Equine Assisted activities are often beneficial for anxiety and other mental health issues. We can work with individuals in partnership with your therapist or on your own with guidance from your mental health professional.
Improve language and cognition.
Children and adults with autism often benefit from working with horses for mounted and non-mounted activities. We are available to work with you and your child's school or medical provider to establish a plan for ongoing activities that may help improve language skills, cognition and or sensory issues.
