Equine Therapy program – Fundación ASPACE Navarra Residencial
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Fundación ASPACE Navarra Residencial, have established their 4th cooperation agreement to support the therapy program.
The equine therapy program “Necesitamos montar a caballo, ¿Nos ayudas?” (“We need to ride on horse; will you help us?”), was conducted at their premises of Fundación ASPACE, at Centro Ramón y Cajal, equipped with an equine therapy track.
The activity, led by specialists from Biki Blasco Riding Centre, was conducted on September 20th and 27th, and October 4th, 11th and 18th, for three hours each day (from 10:00 to 13:00), distributed in six sessions 25 minutes long.
The activity targeted those users with the highest degrees of impairment and disability that for medical and safety reasons can’t travel to the Riding Centre. It benefitted 15 people, from children at the school to adults in the Day Care Centre and the Nursing Home.
Once again, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre supports equestrian therapy programs focused on sensory stimulation, rehabilitation, and the physical and emotional wellbeing of their users.
