Convaid | R82 participated in Friday’s equestrian awards ceremony at the J F Shea Therapeutic Riding Center where young equestrians were honored for their riding achievement. Presenting ribbons to the young riders were members of the Convaid | R82 sales and marketing teams.
The Shea Center caters to rides across typical and special needs communities. Many of the communities served by the Shea Center and Convaid | R82 markedly overlap with synergies to be explored at a series of educational events planned for families, physical and occupational therapists at the onset of the new riding session in a few weeks.
Equestrian therapy has steadily been gaining in popularity with the Convaid | R82 special needs community. Not only does Equine-Assisted Therapy support emotional growth, it has been used to help people with cognitive, psycho-motor and behavioral conditions for centuries. History has it that the benefits of horseback riding date back to Grecian times.
