Horse Program
Generously supported by Woodbine Cares

 

Location:Community Association for Riders with Disabilities (CARD)

This is a pilot program for people living with early to mid-stage dementia and their caregivers created in partnership with the Community Association for Riders with Disabilities (CARD) and generously supported by Woodbine Cares.

In this 6-weeks one-hour program participants can expect to have direct interaction with a therapy horse, learning how to groom the horse, understand some basic body language of horses and gain insight in how the horse perceives and interacts with the world around them. Through the sights, sounds and feel of the horses, participants can re-connect with positive early life memories, or experience the deep joy and contentment that comes from caring for, and interacting with, animals.

Participants are not required to have experience with horses. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing.

Please note: This program does not involve horseback riding.

Dates and Time: October 25, November 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 1:30 to 3:00pm
