Creating special bonds and healing with horses

Strides of Strength Therapeutic Riding is based in Chester, S.C.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - In 2018, Strides of Strength Therapeutic Riding was ready to make a difference by providing therapy treatment through its horse program. COVID-19 shut it down…until last year.

Now, the 501c3 provides a combination of horse riding and physical therapy.

During the sessions, riders and horses create special bonds.

It’s important to note that Strides of Strength Therapeutic Riding practice under the orders of a physician.

Those who are part of the program report that they have seen increases in strength, balance and coordination.
