Here at Green Chimneys we use the therapeutic riding program as therapy utilizing a multi-sensory approach to develop and facilitating psychomotor, language, mathematics, social and emotional sills. Being responsible for care for another living creature is an essential part in developing a healthier and happier "SELF".
The therapeutic riding at Green Chimneys has demonstrated its effectiveness in including a positive change in the child�s attitude toward self, peers, and ability, which has promoted a sense of accomplishment and increased self-confidence. The children have become confident in their own abilities to master and control themselves and their environment and also to have the confidence in others who can help them master skills.
