The Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sports has signed for the sixth consecutive year a collaboration agreement with the Therapies with Horses Professionals Association – APTC, from Valencia, for the development of its therapeutic program with children of the Special Education School Sebastián Burgos.
Starting April 4th, 2016 until May 2nd, there have been five individualized hippotherapy sessions of 30 minutes each, to five children between 3 and 7 years affected by diverse syndromes or physical, mental or sensory disabilities.
The therapeutic program was customized to the needs of these participants, being clear the evolution and the benefits in the short and long term that each one has experienced.
Following the course of action marked by the Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport in its commitment to the promotion of equestrian therapies, this agreement is a new example of this, and how people with very different pathologies can improve their quality of life thanks to the horses.
