    This is write for a helpex person:

    A normal working day started by preparing the horses for the first students, and cleaning up the stables and the foundation.

    Veronica teached me equine therapy through coaching me while I was helping with the therapy.



    I also learned a lot by observing her if she was teaching or giving therapy. I've worked with lots of students, and I loved each student. They all had different characters and different disabilities and Veronica has taught me a lot about the best way to treat them, for each individual student there was a different approach. In the afternoon, if there were no classes to teach, we'd have a little break and Veronica always prepared the best 'licuados' for us to drink. After the break we taught more classes, rode the horses that needed exercise and finished the cleaning.
    The work I performed during the classes was different during each class. Sometimes I was the person leading the horse, or walking next to the student, to hold them and keep them balanced. With some students, I sat with them on the horse, doing different exercises to help them relax their muscles. In some cases, if the student was able to ride individually, I was in the centre of the space, teaching them and giving them different exercises to do while riding.




    Our entity works without any financial allowance, keeping an important scholarship program, given to perform the activity (some of them by the sponsorship system) on individual and customized basis to children from one year old further on, teenagers, young and adults with different pathologies, all of them with assistance once a week, for 11 months per year (not in January).

    Hippotherapy, Therapeutical Back-riding, Horse-riding as sport for people with special abilities
