“Riding Smiles”. (“Sonrisas a Caballo”) – Asociación Al Paso
The second collaboration agreement of Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Al Paso, from Madrid, targeted the organization of a summer camp called “Riding Smiles” (“Sonrisas a Caballo”).
“Riding Smiles” (“Sonrisas a Caballo”) was held on the first week of July 2019, with a 9.30h to 13.30h schedule from Monday to Friday.
The experience was based on therapeutic sessions with horses at Villafranca Equestrian Center for 7 patients with varying degrees of disability and age range from 5 and 17 years, with the support of 5 therapists and 7 volunteers.
With this Camp that fosters integration, rehabilitation and reeducation, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre has contributed positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social development of the 7 beneficiaries.
