Construction of a new working track – Asociación Gaditana de Terapias con Animales – Ágata
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Gaditana de Terapias con Animales – Ágata, signed their 2nd cooperation agreement, for the construction of a new working track.
The growing number of users of this Association has created the need for more working space, such as this track in which two teams will be able to work simultaneously in their therapies.
This association is specialised in individual and group horse assisted interventions, tailored to a user with special needs, and in courses and workshops on issues related to equestrian therapies. Every week, an average of 20 users receive individual sessions, and 170 participate in collective sessions.
Since May 2016 they are running a monthly activity to foster inclusion called “Cabalgando Juntos” (“Riding Together), for children with and without special needs. Around 300 children, aged 3 to 15, have already participated in the activity, 30% of them with special needs.
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre keeps its line of support of equestrian therapies by providing target groups with the resources and allowing for a regular increase in the number of beneficiaries. The cooperation with Ágata is an example of this.
