Work like a Horse, Special Education

After a pilot implemented during the 2016 May holidays, we launched in the school year 2016/2017 a multiannual program, where 15 disabled children (7 to 12 years old) from St. Mattheus School in Rotterdam (a school for children with multiple disabilities) visited Rijvereniging de Hazelaar (a riding school specialized in adapted sports) for a program that lasted a whole school year, all free of charge. The school made these weekly sessions part of their learning program. Individual plans are made for each student in which it is evaluated how the use of horses can stimulate their personal development.
