Carousel Park

Posted on: April 24, 2017



Carousel Park's therapeutic riding program, Freedom Reins, has been nominated for a chance to win a new "Gypsy" horse from Gypsy Gift.  

Freedom Reins at Carousel Park was established in 2012 to enable and empower therapeutic riders to enjoy the freedom of riding at any level. This is such a rich and fulfilling experience for both students and instructors alike. With the use of our therapeutic lift, all students are able to safely enjoy the connection with the horse and the freedom of movement.We hold a year round riding program geared toward special needs students. Some arrive with the assistance of loving parents. Others arrive with the assistance of a nurse or aid from their group home. But, each individual is assessed to fit their needs and limitations. Numerous volunteers generously give of their time to assist with side walking. The students are supported in every way to provide a safe and secure and unique experience with each lesson. Each volunteer finds fulfillment in helping these special needs students. The joy on their faces with each step forward is an expression of love for the student and what is being accomplished. It truly warms the hearts of the staff and the instructions at Freedom Reins to watch each student , whether a child or adult, smile as they are gently lifted upon the horse and safely nestled into the saddle and given the reins. This is what Freedom Reins at Carousel Park is all about. The freedom to move gracefully forward and the freedom to develop new skills. One of our therapeutic students is actually an employee of Freedom Reins at Carousel Park. She also participates in our schooling horse shows with a therapeutic horse. We are proud to say she placed in the event. In closing, we want to give move opportunities to special needs students who wish to enroll in our wonderful program. Therefore, a LexLin Gypsy Gift horse would enable us to expand our fully accredited PATH premier program.

You can vote for Freedom Reins once at day until June 15.
