BENEFITS OF EQUINE ASSISTED SERVICES FOR VETERANS
CJ’s Legacy Ranch programs for Veterans focus on interactions between the horse and the individual allowing for risk-taking activities that build upon improving personal decision-making. The welcoming, indoor air conditioned or heated arena is perfect for healing and stress-relieving venue.
For many individuals who have served in our military, the ability to remain relaxed in the present moment and make important connections with other people is more difficult than most of the general public. Often, this is a by-product of PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
Additionally, when serving in the military, there is a demand for all individuals to be acutely aware of their surroundings at all times due to the perilous conditions faced each day. For many who have served, this hyper-vigilant state does not subside when returning to reintegrate into society. Making connections with civilians is challenging often resulting in a sense of isolation even when returning to home, friends and family.
Equine Assisted Services: Therapeutic Riding
CJ’s Legacy Ranch accommodates all four elements of therapeutic riding as defined by PATH, International: Recreation, Therapy, Sport, and Medicine. We do this in a unique way through our applied interdisciplinary team approach that includes consulting physical, occupational, speech and language, and expressive therapists, educators, and mental health practitioners. Lesson activities are structured to teach riding skills through exercises, games, trails, and more. There is a 180lb weight limit for riding and several diagnostic contraindications.
