Special Needs
Vilanke has had a great deal of success with horses and kids & adults with special needs.
Learning to ride also helps those with special needs and disabilities. Being on a horse, that special interaction with the animal, can help with emotional problems by building a bond and developing trust with the animal. Disabled clients develop emotionally and physically by riding in a secure and safe environment.
A horse moves in a 3 dimensional way which no other therapy can offer so just riding is therapeutic on its own. At Vilanke, we like to work with the therapist that the client is working with, adding exercises that will help the clients achieve even better results.
