At Bennie's Barn, our students come with all kinds of backgrounds, stories, and goals for growth. Whether your desire is to improve sensory, motor, or cognitive skills, gain confidence, ease anxiety, grow into horsemanship, or something else, we welcome all who come here and offer programs that fit a variety of students and their uniqueness.
ONE OF A KIND APPROACH
Using the power of the horse to help people with physical, cognitive, social, and emotional needs to meet their individual goals through the movement of the horse.
PATH Certified Instructors utilize equine movement as a treatment modality to address impairments, functional limitations and different abilities in patients with neuromotor and sensory dysfunction. This treatment strategy is used as part of an integrated treatment program to achieve functional goals.
Riding lessons for the general public and those who have graduated from the Therapeutic Riding & Changing Leads Programs. Riders gain a knowledge of the horse and its movements, while growing in their horsemanship skills both on the ground, and in the saddle, in the arena, and on the trail.
Adults and children will be able to discover their five senses using this trail. Guided by a lead walker and instructor they will take a journey through the wilderness and stop along more than 12 sensory stations set up. Each station is different, allowing the rider to further develop their skills.
Equine Therapy for our wounded service personnel and Veterans who suffer from PTSD, combat stress, sexual assault, hazing trauma and the trauma of being a helping provider to wounded military.
