Topfield's Adaptive/Therapeutic Riding program can benefit individuals living with various physical, psychological, and developmental disabilities.  Examples of disabilities and disorders that adaptive riding addresses are:

  • 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 sessiosn 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.
