By sponsoring private therapeutic riding lessons you can directly help a Bosnian child with special needs work to overcome a physical, cognitive, or mental impairment through the joys of riding! You will become personally involved in the life of one special child and will be regularly updated on their story and their progress.
How the children benefit from sponsorship?
Most of the children we work with do not have the financial means to support therapeutic activities. Your sponsorship makes this far-fetched dream a reality for one individual at a time.
The benefits of horseback riding are as numerous as are the types of disabilities and conditions served. Research shows that students who participate in therapeutic riding can experience physical, emotional and mental rewards. Because horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength. For individuals with mental or emotional disabilities, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem.
Consider sponsoring a child alone or with your group of friends! A donation of $700 will support a child for a year. ($350 for half a year ). Any gift is welcomed and will help offset operating costs.
What does hope feel like? What does courage sound like? What does inspiration look like? You can be part of bringing all these things into the lives of our riders.
BE THE DIFFERENCE!
