RIDING IN THE MOMENT

This program is designed to enhance the quality of life for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other forms of memory loss. We currently partner with four long term care facilities in Northern Colorado who bring clients to us weekly during the summer and fall. Some participants enjoy riding, while others engage in ground work with the horses, such as grooming.

BENEFITS OF RIDING IN THE MOMENT:
  • Enhance levels of engagement both at the ranch and at the care facility
  • Help to facilitate positive experiences, reliving memories and connect with the natural world
  • Demonstrate the power of the human-animal bond
  • Encourage physical and cognitive strengthening activities
