SpiritHorse Liberty Therapeutic Riding Center
LIBERTY, March 10, 2014 - SpiritHorse Liberty Therapeutic Riding Center is an organization that provides riding therapy lessons for special needs children and adults free of charge.
Each lesson includes horse management, responsibility, and ownership. Each student, to his ability, leads, grooms, and saddles his horse before and after each lesson. While riding, each students' individual needs such as speech, balance, cognitive and sensory processing, or behavior, are addressed through horse therapy.
SpiritHorse Liberty serves people with cognitive, emotional, physical, and behavioral disabilities. Each of the eight surrounding counties - Chambers, Jefferson, Polk, Hardin, San Jacinto, Harris, Montgomery, and Galveston - are served.
With the help of the communities' donations, SpiritHorse Liberty serves over 70+ riders. Grants are written to large foundations and corporations, but 97% of the support comes from the community. SpiritHorse International and branch facilities serve more children and adults free of charge than any other center in the world.
SpiritHorse Liberty Therapeutic Riding Center has begun our spring riding session and schedules are being made. If you would like your child to participate, please call Donna at 936-641-0165. There are also opportunities to volunteer.
