Riding summer camps – Asociación Equitación Positiva
The 8th cooperation agreement between Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Equitación Positiva, from Oviedo, allowed for a second activity developed in 2017; a series of riding summer camps.
The Association organized two types of summer camps: residential camp and urban day camp.
The Day Urban Camp, with different equestrian activities, was held from Monday to Fridays at El Asturcón Riding Centre, on a 10:00 a.m. to 14:00 p.m. schedule. 17 persons benefited directly from the program.
The residential camp was held at Cubillos del Sil, from the 26th to the 30th of June. Participants were 14 members of the association and the 5 therapists who usually work with them in the Therapy Program.
These camps intend to promote personal autonomy and responsibility of all participants in a leisure and fun environment that masks their therapeutic orientation, considering Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre that activities like these have to be supported.
