”They give our young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls, they give us hope.”
The mission of the Horse Life Miami is to provide the highest quality of equine-assisted therapy to people with any disabilities in the South Miami, FL and surrounding areas. Through a collaborative effort of medical and equine professionals and the healing power horses possess, Horse Life Miami’’s goal is to better the quality of life of each child & adult participating in our therapeutic riding programs.
People with learning disabilities have the chance to learn through visual, auditory and kinesthetic methods while learning to ride a horse. The horse’s response to the aids and directions given by the rider or driver is a natural positive reinforcement and helps participants build cognitive skills.
Recreational activity that provides a unique combination of physical, emotional, and social benefits. This program emphasizes on horseback riding and horsemanship skills. Horseback riding is known to improve a rider’s quality of life by giving him/her the opportunity to interact and bond with the horse, instructor and other riders leading to a positive emotional and social experience all via a shared activity. In addition, these activities provide improvements in posture, flexibility, balance, muscle strength, attention span, ability to follow instructions, develop social interactions, self-confidence by overcoming fear and anxiety, self-awareness and self-esteem.
New research shows that equine therapy might go a long way in starting the healing process for these veterans. At Horse Life Miami we encourage veterans to build relationships, improve their trust and heal their scars. Benefits of equine-assisted services for these individuals include strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, self-esteem, encouragement through regaining function and mobility and re-establishing social ties through engagement in team activities.
