Quirón Project – Asociación Abaqur
Abaqur Association, in Madrid, and Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte, have settled a new cooperation agreement, which is their fourth, to launch the Quirón Project.
Quirón Project consists of equine therapy sessions for adults and seniors with diversity, that follow a physical activity program using the horse, both foot-to-ground and mounted, to achieve the objective of functional improvement.
The number of beneficiaries has been 15 people aged between 35 and 90, who attended therapy for 3 to 6 months.
The regular practice of physical exercise is a proven tool to reduce the effects of ageing on persons with diversity, and horses enhance their motivation to practice, points that have led the Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre to support this project.
