    Default Southern NH and surrounding areas

    Currently I am working with disabled riders in the area. I do both lunge lessons and more advanced lessons off the lunge on the students' horses.

    My background includes competing in the NAYRC and many years competing at the FEI levels.

    Please feel free to PM me if you would like to contact me.
    Thanks!

    I had a therapist back in Florida send a few of her patients out for horse back riding lessons (not therapy riding), among these was bi-polar, severe ADHD, OCD and general 'at risk' youth (kids with oppositional tendencies).

    I've also worked with mild cerebral palsy and autism children.

    On the adult side I've worked with replaced knees, fear, and students who started riding for weight issues. I have also started a handful of newbie riders that were 60+.

    I've got a wonderful, wonderful lunge line horse (and pony) and have been lunging riders for over 20 years.

    As long as your health care professionals clear you for equine activities and you can give me a little info on potential limitations I am very patient and non-judgmental (saying that mostly for parents who have children that don't 'behave' like many people think children should) and am very willing to adjust our activities accordingly.

    Safety and enjoyment are what is most important to me.

    I do not have adaptive equipment or handicap facilities however.

    I don't get on COTH often, but you can use the link in my signature below.

    Sorry, though, no schoolies. I do have access to an arena for trailer-ins and will travel.
    Updating my own original post.

    I'm no longer using the handle Beasmom and the email associated with it no longer works. I can be PM'ed as ThreeFigs.

    Unfortunately, my BO is no longer accepting trailer-ins and is not friendly to disabled riders and their needs, but I'm still willing to drive to students.

    If there's anyone in the Denver Metro with a barn that would welcome riders with disabilities, I'd appreciate hearing about them! To clarify, I do know we have several therapeutic riding centers, but they don't have programs for riders who want to compete as Para Equestrians, AFAIK.

    I've been teaching riders with disabilities for nearly 8 years - wide range from autism, developmental delay, cystic fibrosis, ADD, ADHD, cerebral palsy, stroke victims, overweight, timid, etc.

    I am PATH certified (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) and have recently "officially" begun my special abilities riding program, Kingdom Hearts Therapeutic Riding here at my farm, Equine Kingdom Riding Academy.

    We integrate our special needs riders into the regular program rather than "setting them apart". We have 13 awesome lesson horses of all levels, ages, and breeds that are just amazing and very trustworthy. We do not have any way to currently accept riders that are wheelchair bound or need a ramp, as we do not currently have a wheelchair ramp.

    Looking forward to making some contacts here on COTH!!

    Default Help in the barn with a simple wheel barrow

    Just going thru forums as new member and wanted to mention we purchased a tri willburrow kit for my friend that is handicap from www.ShopSpur.com and it was a huge help for him being able to do things in the barn. It made our wheel barrow like a walker for him to get around with. He could help clean stalls and also lean on this when needed to. It made it so you never picked up the wheel barrow again you pushed it ... or again it was like a walker for him. Just and idea for the elderly or handicap person and thought I would share.

    OK, having started on page 3 of this thread I guess I have figured out what an NQR rider is, but I wish the thread had started off telling me so I would know for sure!

    NQR = Not Quite Right

    Covers a lot of territory.

    Oh that is disgusting. I may not always "feel" quite right but if anyone labeled me NQR I would NOT appreciate it!

    Not funny at all, folks. The idea for the thread is good; to refer to some riders as Not Quite Right is seriously offensive. If you want to call yourself that, OK; just don't label the rest (even those you want to "help").

    Default Fl trainer

    I am a disabled rider with MS and my trainer is SOOOO helpful to me. Dressage only, my left leg doesn't work and left hand can't grip well, so lateral work is tough. Her name is Joan Potter and she is in the Tampa area.

    I am a PATH International (professional association of therapeutic horsemanship) certified instructor. I have a small program offering lessons to children and adults with "special needs". We have recently just opened so at this time I still do not have a wheelchair ramp and can not accommodate wheelchairs yet. The barn I work out of also has a lesson program for able bodied riders. We have school horses on site that are awesome. You can check out my website at www.jerichosgift.com. We have both covered and uncovered rings.
