Therapeutic riding can be traced as far back as 600 B.C. A unique bond is often formed between human and animal and people throughout the ages have recognized the importance of riding for people with special needs.







Gaits of Freedom Therapeutic Riding goal

"... is to bring the beauty and love of horses to each rider and to help develop a trusting, positive relationship with fun and success".

Elizabeth Flaherty,
Director, Gaits of Freedom
Click to VIEW LIZZY'S PROFILE


Therapeutic riding is specially designed horseback riding lessons that help people with a range of disabilities from autism to cerebral palsy. The balance, socialization and concentration that is needed to ride a horse has helped people with physical, social and cognitive disabilities dating back to as early as 600 B.C.

Many parents of disabled children are amazed at how easily their children take to therapeutic horseback riding and how much they enjoy and benefit from it.

Equine-assisted therapy can benefit the posture, balance and strength of riders through the direct movement of the horse, while the activities help develop fine motor, memorization and socialization skills.



We have three areas of focus
for our students ...
Improve the student's balance, strength/endurance, coordination, language and/or cognitive skills.

Build self-confidence/esteem and give the students a sense of control they might not get a chance to experience off the horse.

Teach the student to ride and care for a horse at their level of ability.




WHAT TO EXPECT

A Licensed Therapist and Certified Riding Instructor will evaluate all new riders. At that time, the riders will be placed into an appropriate level based on his/her ability and/or safety. Rider's ability and level will be assessed throughout the four week session.

The groups will be a 1/2 hour in length. The lessons include the rider preparing the horse/pony for riding (i.e., brushing and putting on the saddle) and returning the horse/pony to the stall.

The level of participation of the rider will depend on the riders physical/cognitive limitations.

All riders MUST wear an ASTM/SEI-certified equestrian helmet (no bicycle helmets).

All riders MUST wear long pants (preferably jeans) and hard sole shoes (no sandals). There will be no exceptions.

If any of the above pose a problem due to sensory issues, please let us know and we will work with you to help the rider tolerate the helmet, horse, or barn environment.



ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS

Level 5: Horse Handler, 2 side walkers

Level 4: Horse Handler, 1 side walker

Level 3: Horse Handler

Level 2: Independent with support

Level 1: Independent




HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Signing up is very easy:

Call us at (413) 245-3083

Entrance will be first come, first serve. Space is limited.

You will be sent an application form to be completed by the student's parent/guardian and a medical release form to be completed by the student's doctor.

To all Students/Campers,

For the safety of all Fairview Farms patrons, there are some small rules we would like you to respect:

All staff and Volunteers must submit a CORI Check.

There will be no dealings with horses until an instructor or supervisor is present.

All Students/Campers are required to wear proper footing (with a heal) and an approved helmet when riding.

No camper may mount a horse unless supervised.

All campers must respect their instructors during any involvement with the horses or they will be dismissed.

There will be no leaving the barn with a horse unless permitted by the instructor.

Absolutely no leaving the property with any horses at any time.

There is no running in the barn.

Thank you for your cooperation, if you have any questions regarding these regulations, please call Krystine O’Connor at your convenience.



General

Please bear in mind that horseback riding requires muscle coordination, balance, mental alertness, and the ability to follow directions promptly and accurately. In the interest of safety, Fairview Farms administration, management and faculty reserves the right to forbid students or boarders who are mentally or physically unfit, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol to ride or handle horses.

The decision of the facility manager is final in regard to the use of all facilities and related equipment. In the absence of the facility manager, the stable supervisor will make the final decision.

In reference to an issue about your horse, changes, questions, complaints, etc. must be taken to Krystine O'Connor.

The decision of the instructor is final in regard to the use of horses and related equipment. In the absence of an instructor, the decision of the barn manager is final.

There is to be NO SMOKING in the barn area except in designated areas.

Fairview Farms owned equipment is available for use by all students riding our horses; however, it is not to be kept in private lockers or trunks for exclusive use by one student unless the instructor has given permission and the equipment is signed out (training class, horse show). Any tack found in student trunks will be considered stolen and may be handled as theft.

A scheduled activity has priority in the use of facilities and horses.

Handling Horses

Horses are not to be left unattended or untied in grooming areas or wash stalls or left unattended while tied in stalls.

Horses are never to be tied in any way by the bridle. A halter may be slipped over the bridle if a horse must be tied with its bridle on.

Horses are never to be out of their stalls without proper restraints. They must be wearing a halter and lead shank/rope, or bridle.

Horses should not be chased while loose in the paddocks. If they need to be worked before riding, please do so in the round pen or on a longe line.

Horses are not to be grazed loose except in paddocks. Handlers must remain standing when grazing a horse. Do not let your horse graze grass with the bit in his mouth.

Stall doors must be completely open and latches pushed back before leading a horse in or out of his stall. Walk into the stall with your horse.

Clean and Tidy

It is the absolute responsibility of the boarders and students to clean up after themselves and their horses. There are adequate trash containers as well as shovels, brooms and muck buckets for the disposal of manure, hair, hoof pickings and general refuse. Please use these, and do not leave unsightly messes in the aisles. Stalls may not be cleaned into the muck buckets in the crosstie areas unless the buckets are dumped. If bedding or manure spills from the wheelbarrow or bucket, it must be swept up. This includes around the stall, in the aisles, through the outside doors, and in the drives. YOU MAKE A MESS, YOU CLEAN IT UP!!

Hoses

The hoses must be wound up (aisle) after you are finished using them. Shod horses puncture hoses when they step on them. In winter, the hose is kept in the lounge to prevent it from freezing. Please return it there when you are finished using it. Drain the hose before putting it in the lounge.

Additional Rules

Keep all areas neat and clean, particularly barn aisles.

No riding is permitted in the barn aisles or in stalls.

Do not dump trash in manure buckets or manure in trash bins.

Please return equipment to its proper place after use.
Turn lights off when you leave the room or if you are the last person to leave the barn.

Telephone use is limited to emergencies only. NO long distance service is provided.
