The true heroes of our program, Cheyenne Therapeutic Equestrian Center's horses are chosen due to their patients, love and their abilities. They are the ones who allow our riders to grow, learn rehabilitate and most important of all to enjoy life. Each of the horses help the rider achieve things that most of us take for granted, such as walking or just simply connecting with someone else. Horses have the ability to read the rider's feelings and to a point understand what their riding is feeling, but these characteristics and accepting nature are not the only reason why horses are great for therapeutic proposes. Equine therapy has been successfully integrated into treatment programs for adults and teens who are being treated for substance abuse, addiction, behavior disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, learning differences, ADD/ADHD, autism, Asperger’s, grief/loss, trauma, sex addiction, compulsive gambling, bipolar, depression and related conditions.
