Topfield's Adaptive/Therapeutic Riding program can benefit individuals living with various physical, psychological, and developmental disabilities as well as anyone looking for a non-competitive form of horseback riding in a very supportive environment.  Examples of common issues that adaptive riding works really well with, include:

  • Muscular Dystrophy

  • Cerebral  Palsy

  • Autism

  • Down Syndrome

  • Anxiety

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • ​Cognitive Disabilities​

  • Developmental Delays

While the physical benefits, such as motor coordination, balance and muscle tone, achieved from adaptive riding are numerous, the emotional and social benefits are also far reaching.  Group sessions are specifically designed to provide opportunities for participants to practice cooperation, listening skills, language skills, patience, and empathy.  Participants build independence, create long lasting friendships, and develop a sense of belonging and self-confidence through mounted activities.
