Autism Radio Partners with Stella Therapy Riding to Host a Therapeutic Riding Open House and Showcase
May 5 Event to Promote Therapeutic Riding to Children and Families in Northern New Jersey
POMPTON PLAINS, NJ – Autism Radio Network partnered with Stella Therapy Riding, a NJ Non-Profit Corporation, to host an event promoting the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding, especially for children with Autism.
The event will take place at the North Jersey Equestrian Center (1 Carlson Place in Pompton Plains, New Jersey) on May 5 at 6:30 p.m. It will feature remarks from both Paul Cimins founder of Autism Radio Network and Lisa Gephardt, President and Founder of Stella Therapy Riding. Stella Therapy Riding students will also showcase their equestrian skills, which will evaluated by a panel of judges.
“I believe that therapeutic riding can be very helpful to many children and adults on the autism spectrum,” commented Paul Cimins, President and Founder, Autism Radio. “After meeting with Lisa and learning more about her program, I felt that this event would be a great way to introduce therapeutic riding to people who may not be familiar with it.”
“We at Stella Riding are thrilled to be working with Paul and Autism Radio,” commented Lisa Gephardt. “He is doing amazing work bringing his show, Hope Saves the Day, to families around the country, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to expose more people to the positive effects of therapeutic riding.”
The benefits of therapeutic riding have been recognized for many years. It is a proven method of increasing the physical, mental, emotional and developmental capabilities for individuals with disabilities, functional limitations or medical issues. There is a healing interaction between horses, riders and the people who help them.
All Families interested in learning more about therapeutic riding are invited to attend. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. The event is free, and light refreshments will be served. Those interested in volunteering to assist the riding program, please email [email protected]
