At Sherwood Little Rides, we are proud to offer a Horses Helping Seniors program. Equine guided services have been known to help seniors with physical as well as psychological benefits.
Being around horses is proven to have several advantages for people struggling with anxiety, depression, loneliness and even cognitive impairments such as Alzheimers and Dementia.
Our vision is to provide a safe and social activity for seniors with the opportunity to be outdoors and connect with horses. We are committed to providing them with an experience that will benefit them emotionally, mentally and physically.
Time Period: 2 Hours
Cost Per Session: $45 Per Person
Group Size: 5- 8 People
*Please note we require 1 aged care staff per 5 participants.
During the 2 Hour session participants will participate in the following activities:
Meet and Greet with the Horses
We understand each participant will have different experiences and comfort-ability with horses and we will adjust the activities accordingly to meet their needs where possible.
