Equine Therapy Program – Asociación Unicornio Azul
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Unicornio Azul, from Guadalajara settled their fifth cooperation agreement to conduct an Equine Therapy Program.
This Equine Therapy Program targeted 30 members of “La Chopera”, aged from 25 to 56 years, all suffering from severe intellectual diversity. The program, consisting in one hour weekly sessions, began in September and ended in July. Intervention methodology combined individual and group activities.
8 small groups worked on teamwork goals. Individual work began with an assessment of each participant carried out with the support of professional staff from “La Chopera” (physiotherapist and psychologist) setting particular goals for each of them.
One more year, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre sponsors permanent therapy programs that, as is shown in this case, bring significant benefits to all participants. On the other hand, the Association is willing to provide the treatment during as many months in the year as possible.
