River Valley Riders
Location: Woodbury, Minnesota
River Valley Riders enriches the lives of children and adults with special needs by providing equine assisted activities and therapies, including therapeutic horseback riding and carriage driving lessons. Our program helps participants gain self-confidence and self-esteem, build strength, improve balance and hand-eye coordination, while forming meaningful relationships. A person who uses a wheelchair can ride a horse and see the world from a new perspective and sometimes can gain enough strength to walk. Children with autism become calm and can focus more easily which can improve their performance in school. Troubled youth can learn life skills such as leadership, trust, responsibility. All of these things can happen because of interactions with our special therapy horses. Please visit www.RiverValleyRiders.org for more information.
