Donation of adapted riding equipment – Asociación Zooterapia Extremadura
Fundación para la Promoción para el Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Zooterapia Extremadura have set their 7th cooperation agreement, for the donation of adapted riding equipment.
Asociación Zooterapia Extremadura conducts horse assisted therapy sessions on a regular basis for the benefit of 55 users, all suffering from very different conditions: Rett and Down syndromes, Attention Deficit with or without Hyperactivity, and cerebral palsy. They also teach adapted riding lessons, currently attended by 10 pupils with intellectual diversity, Asperger syndrome,muscular dystrophy and Down syndrome.
With this new equipment received due to the support of Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre, Asociación Zooterapia Extremadura will be able to provide individuals and groups with an effective and functionally adapted Equestrian Therapy programme, to work on their physical, intellectual, emotional and personal skills.
