Therapeutic Riding Program

Topfield's Therapeutic Riding program can benefit individuals working through various challenges.  Examples of disabilities and disorders that therapeutic riding can help:

  • Muscular Dystrophy

  • Cerebral  Palsy

  • Autism

  • Down Syndrome

  • Anxiety

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • ​Cognitive Disabilities​

  • Developmental Delays

  • Cancer


While the physical benefits, such as motor coordination, balance and muscle tone, achieved from therapeutic riding are numerous, the emotional and social benefits are also far reaching.  The therapeutic riding group session is specifically designed to provide opportunities for participants to practice cooperation, listening skills, language skills, patience, and empathy.  Participants build independence, create long lasting friendships, and develop a sense of belonging and self-confidence through equine assisted and mounted activities.
