Horse Assisted Therapy Programme – ASPACE Baleares
For the sixth time, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación de Parálisis Cerebral de Baleares (ASPACE), have established a sponsorship agreement to provide newadapted riding equipment for their Horse Assisted Therapy Programme.
With this equipment they will be able to continue with their Therapy sessions in which they approach all ways of working with the horse: basic care (grooming, nutrition, …), fence maintenance, therapeutic riding, hypo-therapy, or para-equestrian competitions. All tailored to meet the needs of each and every participant.
As a hole, 144 persons from the different institutions members of the Association, such as “ES Siurell” Day Care Centre, Pinyol Vermell Special Needs Education School, and Vuit Vents Nursing Home, have participated in the sessions held from Monday to Friday, from 15:15 to 18:15, and on Saturdays from 10:00 to 14:00 h.
The Horse Assisted Therapy Program by ASPACE Baleares seeks to offer better life quality to individuals suffering from cerebral palsy, and Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre values very positively their supplementary interventions on holistic personal development and physical rehabilitation.
