Our Horses

Horses have a therapeutic affinity. Equine-assisted activities can be fun because the activities are very hands on and don’t feel like typical therapy sessions. Horses give immediate feedback about actions and body language through mirroring. If a person is tense and nervous, the horse will reflect this feeling back to the person eventually resulting in the person acting and reacting appropriately.

Dream Riders of Kentucky works diligently to pair each rider with a horse that will compliment his/her personality and/or disability. Program horses are at least 10 years of age and oftentimes older. New horses are vetted carefully before being introduced to the program.
