“First Contact, First Thrill” – ASETE
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre cooperated in 2018 with Asociación de Especialistas en Terapias Ecuestres (ASETE), from Manises (Valencia), through the third agreement set between both institutions.
Four persons from different centres, aged 17 to 31, suffering from ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome and other conditions, received grants to participate in the Equestrian Therapy Project “Primer contacto, primera ilusión” (“First Contact, First Thrill”).
Four 50 minutes therapy sessions were conducted during March and April, scheduled as closely as it was possible to build up and maximize their benefits.
Their effects were very positive on all participants, and all goals regarding physical workout and therapeutic improvement of the different conditions were met. Some participants requested to continue with the therapy, so Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre believes that introducing new users to these therapies is an important part of their promotion.
