With input from parents, caregivers, educators and therapists each rider is evaluated and individual goals and objectives are created to meet their specific needs. Riders are periodically re-evaluated as needed to ensure they are receiving the best possible service that CTREE can provide in order to attain their goals.
Private and semi-private lessons are conducted year round in four 6-week sessions and one 8-week session. The stables, indoor arena, outdoor arenas, trails and grassy paddocks are all utilized for lessons and equine assisted activities.
CTREE also provides therapeutic riding lessons and equine assisted activities for Special Education school groups wishing to enhance their school curriculum. Field trips offer special needs groups therapeutic riding, horsemanship and community integration.
CTREE rider Declan’s mom, Katy, says, “For the first time my son has a sport he can feel proud about. Besides improving his coordination and focus, riding has enabled him to feel athletically accomplished.”
