Walk On is a therapeutic horseback riding program located in Barrington since 2006. We provides equine assisted activities to children, as young as 3 years old, and adults as old as 93 with physical, cognitive, social and emotional disabilities.
The benefits of therapeutic horseback riding:
Physical improvements that horseback therapy can provide include: balance coordination, mobility, muscle tone, muscle control, sensory integration and visual/spatial orientation.
Cognitive benefits that the therapy can provide include: improvement of attention, communication, judgment, following directions, problem solving and sequencing.
Social/emotion and behavior benefits of horseback riding therapy include: improved cooperation, empathy, responsibility, respect, confidence motivation, goal setting, self esteem, relaxation, self discipline and trust.
Walk On offers an indoor and outdoor arena, a sensory paddock, and a sensory trail.
In addition to regular weekly therapeutic horseback riding lessons, Walk On welcomes assisted living facilities and day groups for a variety of "Meet & Greets" specialized to your group.
Walk On offers lessons Monday – Saturday.
Walk On is located at 26665 West Cuba in Barrington Illinois.
Interviews and photo/video opportunities are welcome with appointment.
