lessons500The King David Stables riding school offers lessons for children and youth throughout the academic year. Lessons are given in a pleasant atmosphere under the direction of professional instructors. Lessons cover riding, horse care and grooming, basic veterinary science, horse training, archery, lasso throwing and more.

In addition to teaching about the world of horses these lessons:

  • instill sportsmanlike qualities
  • develop an affinity for animals
  • strengthen self-confidence
  • provide a source of pride
  • establish a sense of belonging to a place of unique and quality atmosphere

The program is adapted to each participant according to his/her age and riding ability. The younger children begin riding on ponies and progress gradually to larger horses.

Lessons are given in English and/or Hebrew.

Two options are available for lessons:

Private: 45 minute lesson, once a week; Group: 60 minute lesson, once a week in the appropriate group (depending on age and riding ability)

therapeutic500In 1952, the Danish rider Liz Hartel, normally confined to a wheelchair, won an Olympic riding medal in open competition. Since then, the awareness of therapeutic riding and its advantages has risen, and hundreds of therapeutic riding centers have been established throughout Europe and the United States.

Physical

The motion of the horse's walk stimulates the pelvis, hips and torso to move in a normal walking pattern and is a great tool for people learning to walk. Riding also improves posture and balance, muscle strength and eye-hand coordination. The motion and warmth of the horse's body relax spastic muscles and provide sensory input.


Psychological
Horseback riding allows control and promotes independence and responsibility. It requires the rider to cope with situations that encourage the development of concentration, perseverance and problem solving. Identifying riding as a sport for "healthy" people is a source of pride for the riders and improves self-esteem and self-respect. Handicap riding competitions have been held in Israel over 15 years.
Additionally, riding allows the individual to develop a relationship with a responsive animal which accepts the rider without judgment. The horse reacts instinctively and therefore provides feedback about the rider's behaviour.

Recreational
One of the most important elements of therapeutic riding is the riding itself. Every individual or parent of a child, with special needs knows that therapy can be difficult and unpleasant. Therapeutic riding instills joy and fun in a non-clinical environment. It often becomes a favorite hobby.
