IVY HILL THERAPEUTIC EQUESTRIAN CENTER CREATES THERAPEUTIC PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH COGNITIVE, PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS UTILIZING THE EQUINE EXPERIENCE.
"About 10 years ago Sophia entered the barn at Ivy Hill and began a journey that would forever change our lives. My completely non-verbal child, who at the time was receiving over 20 therapies a weeks to help in every area we could, began receiving Equine Therapy. This amazing place not only helped her physically, mentally and emotionally, they absolutely changed her life. She began speaking! She's grown into an amazing young lady, and although this year has been one of her toughest she still has Ivy Hill to rely on to help her through. Please take a second to watch this short video created by silverbox creative studio, that beautifully tells the story of Sophia's journey and why she loves Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center."
In the last 18 years, Ivy Hill has grown to serve 184 active riders and 300 Special Program participants with 16 therapy horses, 28 staff, and 120 volunteers. Ivy Hill provides equine-assisted activities and therapeutic programs for children and adults with special needs as well as financial and emotional support for their families and caregivers. Our therapeutic riding program, hippotherapy program and competition participation build physical, emotional and personal health. The opportunity to compete on horseback opens the world of sportsmanship and pride to our riders and families. The Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies we have created reach to families that have children with cancer, families that have loved ones with severe physical disabilities and co-morbidities, teens and young adults who deal with social isolation, mental illness, addiction, and behavioral challenges, senior citizens trapped by physical and cognitive fraility and isolation - these are the members of the Ivy Hill family.
