Here's a great program for individuals with disabilities in the Birmingham, AL area:

Individuals with developmental, physical, emotional and mental disabilities are often faced with challenges and limitations that can last a lifetime. However through lifestyle adjustments and therapies, many individuals are able to manage, adapt or possibly overcome the vast array of symptoms that frequently hold them back from experiencing the joys of life.

Through the use of high quality therapeutic horseback riding, Special Equestrians, Inc. has helped many Jefferson and Shelby county residents increase their level of independence and enhance their quality of life. For 25 years, Special Equestrians has provided therapeutic horseback riding and equine assisted activities to individuals with physical, mental, developmental and/or emotional disabilities. In addition to providing social interaction to help improve communication skills, the therapeutic horseback riding program provides physical benefits such as increasing strength and stimulating muscles as well as emotional and psychological benefits such as increasing confidence and self-esteem.

The sole focus of the Special Equestrian program is the success of its riders. To become a Special Equestrian rider, individuals must be two (2) years of age or older and diagnosed with a physical, mental, developmental and/or emotional disability. Once approved for the Special Equestrian program, riders are eligible to participate in weekly classes that include a variety of activities such as warm-ups, horse handling, a trail ride or a game. Although there is a fee associated with the Special Equestrian program, riders are not turned down due to their inability to pay.

For more information about Special Equestrians or to apply to become a rider, please call (205) 987-9462.
