Trish's Rockin' Horses

Therapeutic Riding Centre

This fledgling enterprise aims to make a difference......Located at Kilbride, Glenmore, Co. Kilkenny X91 NY29 - the sylvan charm and rolling landscape provide an environment that is relaxing which is conducive to learning. The centre is open Wednesdays 3.00pm to 6.00pm and all day Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. 

A horse can transfer 110 multi-dimensional swinging motions in the walk to the rider each minute.  By being astride the horse, with the coach giving specific instructions, the horse naturally helps to increase body strength, control and balance.  As the horse walks, the rider makes subtle adjustments to his / her body position in order to try and maintain stability.  It is this change that the rider has to make when a horse walks that is the basis of therapeutic riding.
