 Therapeutic Horseback Riding
  Monterrey, San Carlos, Costa Rica
 

Throughout the world horseback riding is considered a uniquely beneficial form of therapy. A special relationship between horse and rider begins with the seed of introduction,  growing and flourishing over time. The Spanish word that describes unexplainable bonds is VINCULO.  Some people believe horses have a uniquely developed instinctual center in their brain that allows them to sense a person's individual needs.  This mysterious sense facilitates the bond (vinculo) between horses and humans. Formation of this special bond during Therapeutic horseback riding promotes wellness in individuals that have special needs.
 
Therapy on horseback inspires self confidence, improves balance, poise, flexibility, reflexes, strength and coordination. Riders learn basic grooming and care of their horse promoting a sense of responsibility and teamwork.  Additionally, cognitive, emotional and behavioral goals can be set and accomplished during equine oriented activities.   
 
At Vinculo con Caballo we believe therapeutic goal setting should involve the rider and the family of the rider with the guidance of the therapist. 
 
 
 
 


 Let Me Teach You
by Willis Lamm
When you are tense, let me teach you to relax. 
When you are short tempered, let me teach you to be patient. 
When you are short sighted, let me teach you to see. 
When you are quick to react, let me teach you to be thoughtful. 
When you are angry, let me teach you to be serene. 
When you feel superior, let me teach you to be respectful. 
When you are self absorbed, let me teach you to think of greater things. 
When you are arrogant, let me teach you humility. 
When you are lonely, let me be your companion. 
When you are tired, let me carry the load. 
When you need to learn, let me teach you. 
After all, I am your horse...
