Almost half of our over 90 pupils are children suffering from cerebral palsy. Other patients suffer from diverse disabilities, meningomyelocele, Down’s Syndrome, autism, psychomotor developmental delay, hyperactivity or emotional disorder.
A little bit of history ...
During our first 10 years of activity we promoted the hippotherapy method as a universal form of multi-disciplinary rehabilitation, the unique character of which consists in simultaneous motor, sensory, mental and social stimulation.
At that time we were taking a series of actions significant for the development of the whole hippotherapeutic movement in Poland, for example in 1992 we initiated the founding of the Polish Hippotherapeutic Association and organised the Association's statutory meeting; we established the first international contacts (Therapeutic Riding for the Disabled International, FENTAC, NARHA) and issued Polish editions of publications on hippotherapy.
Starting from 2000, we have been concentrating on implementing a model for the comprehensive rehabilitation of disabled children, assisted by, among other things, hippotherapy and family therapy.
Our core aim is to help children with special needs in their psychomotor and social development.
