Equine Therapy program – Fundación ASPACE Navarra Residencial
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre have established their 5th cooperation agreement to support the Equine Therapy program run by Fundación ASPACE Navarra Residencial.
The Equine Therapy Program was held at their own facilities at Ramón y Cajal Centre, at Zizur Menor, which belongs to Fundación Aspace Navarra, conducted by professional staff from Biki Blasco Riding Centre.
The activity was conducted during 6 days in November and December, performing every day 6 sessions, 25 minutes each, on a 3 hours work schedule.
The activity was specially oriented to the most severe cases or those with greater special needs, that for medical safety reasons can’t go to the riding centre, and benefited 18 users of the Day Care Centre, Nursing Home and Special Education School.
The program covered sensory stimulation, rehabilitation, physical and emotional wellness through horse related activities, enjoyed in a rural environment in contact with animals, something Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre is willing to foster in its collaborations.
