Horse Assisted Therapies – Fundación Carriegos
For the last 10 years, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Fundación Carriegos, from León, have signed consecutive cooperation agreements. This year, the Foundation will sponsor a project on Horse Assisted Therapies, giving grants to the participants.
The group that will receive the grants are 10 personas aged from 6 to 26, suffering from intellectual diversity ranging from mild to severe. The program was conducted in weekly sessions (45 minutes long) at the premises of Fundación Carriegos, starting in February and ending in December 2017.
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre promotes the use of Horse Assisted Interventions because they are considered a comprehensive therapy with great benefits. They can be used in specific areas of intervention, such as psychology, physiotherapy and pedagogy, or as complementary to other therapies.
