Freedom Farm Rider Information

   Freedom Farm serves individuals with a variety of diagnoses including; cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome, developmental delays and PTSD. Riders come for many different reasons and the benefits vary for each rider.

   Through the horse, riders - many for the first time - discover a sense of independence and freedom. 

  • Some have never been able to sit up on their own
  • Some have never spoken
  • Some have a hard time understanding and managing their feelings
  • Some have muscles that are so tight, it limits their independence

Therapeutic riding utilizes the unique attributes of the horse to:

  • build confidence and self esteem
  • improve posture and coordination
  • exercise and strengthen weak muscles
  • teach "being in the moment" of total concentration
  • improve balance and body awareness
  • create a sense of accomplishment
