Sox and Sam*
Individuals learn best when we can relate. Sox and Sam is a hands-on relationship program blended with both physical and cognitive horse-based activities. While the physical activity of riding improves strength, balance and coordination, working with horses also increases cognitive skills, reduces stress, and eases symptoms of depression for many individuals. Equine relationships have even been shown to have a positive effect on destructive relationship patterns or behaviors that have developed that compromise health or safety. *Calvert Equestrian, LLC., or Little Cove Farm, Inc., is not a Equine Therapeutic Facility. The owner has over 34 years of experience teaching children, including children with special needs, physical limitations, as well as over 48 years experience with horses.
50-60 min of instruction per week for students who are able to independently and properly groom and tack up their horse. Each rider must be able to safely guide off-lunge at the walk and posting trot.
Two - four riders grouped according to their riding ability.
