The 5th agreement between Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Nuevo Horizonte, from Madrid, establishedtheir collaboration in the Horse Therapy program oriented to adults suffering fromAutism Spectrum Disorders.
During 2018, 8 members of the Association benefited from the Equestrian Therapy Program.
The intervention was conducted from January to December, for 90 minutes a week.
With individualized interventions, they have established a concrete routine, divided into different spaces and times. In a parallel way, in a group program, motor and cognitive activities, exercises related to the horse, handling and riding have been proposed. The organization of the sessions has been divided into the following parts: greeting, hygiene, ground, dress, riding, games and cross-cutting activities.
The determination of Asociación Nuevo Horizonte in the continuation of Horse Therapies for the benefit of its members has encouraged the contribution of Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre to ensure participation and facilitate the work with horses.
