Hippotherapy Program – APTC
The Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport supports, for the fourth consecutive year, the program that the Association of Professionals in Therapies with Horses (APTC) develops with students of the Sebastián Burgos EEC of Valencia.
The program is aimed at children between 3 and 8 years. The beneficiaries were chosen by a draw conducted at the school among 30 children who met the requirements of the program, from among which they have been able to carry out the 5 therapies.
The sessions have been organized so that each child could receive one per week, during the months of May and June, lasting 30 minutes.
The cognitive and functional characteristics of the participants in the program were quite different from each other. However, in all the cases, both their physical state as their cognitive capacity allowed to make sessions following the same structure of exercises in pre-mount, mount and post-mount.
The support for this program continues the line of action of the Foundation for the Promotion of Equestrian Sport, reaffirming the values and principles that it tries to keep in all its activities.
