Equestrian Therapy Program oriented to adults suffering from ASD – Asociación Nuevo Horizonte
The signature of the 4th cooperation agreement between Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Nuevo Horizonte, from Madrid, has favoured the continuity of their Equestrian Therapy Program oriented to adults suffering from ASD.
Throughout 2017, eight members of this Association have benefited from the program. 90 minutes interventions were held at the Riding Centre, from January to December, on a weekly basis.
Activities focused on horse riding, foot on ground walks, horse grooming and care, and other alternatives, such as active games, demanded by the users.
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre supports initiatives likes this, that involve significant and functional activities, aimed not only to preserve existing capacities, but also to favour personal growth, increasepersonal autonomy and the quality of life of the participants.
