Adapted riding equipment – Fundación Cavalli
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Fundación Cavalli – Cavalli Foundation, from Murcia, have signed their second sponsorship agreement, materialized in the donation of adapted riding equipment for the benefit of their many different equestrian activities.
In this particular occasion, the equipment has been used in therapeutic riding programs for people with different types and degrees of impairment. Also, the equipment has been used in an inclusive volunteer training workshop held from April to December for participants with different profiles: from those who want to become Therapy Support Workers certified by the British Horse Society Qualification, to individuals with intellectual diversity who wanted to learn the basics of therapy horse care, or others suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders who wanted to receive training as volunteers as a way to pursue job opportunities in the equestrian world. As a whole, 74 persons benefited from the program.
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre is willing to support projects like this by Fundación Cavalli, where we see how the donation of equipment can be useful in many ways: for its use in therapies, or for the training of volunteers who will support the development of future activities.
