Equine Therapy-Equinoterapia Girona Mas Alba
The second agreement between Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Equinoterapia Girona Mas Alba was signed to support the Equine Therapy project run on their premises.
The beneficiaries of the project were 20 children from Mare de Déu del Mont de Vilafant School, from Girona, with different profiles according to their cognitive, psychomotor and social needs, capacities and functional diversity. For these children, it was their first experience in equine therapy sessions.
The different groups rotated through the different sessions, to receive a more personalised attention, tailored to each and everyone’s needs. With this arrangement, every user participated in the grooming and care of horses, and could ride for at least 25 minutes.
After this first contact with horses, this Association has managedto have several children continue with individual sessions, something important to Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre as it proves the benefits of Equestrian Therapies.
