Healing on Horseback
GAIT, Guided Animal Intervention Therapy, is an innovative therapeutic riding program where horses are instrumental in helping children heal after experiencing severe emotional or physical trauma. Children are placed on horseback and are given the opportunity to heal by building a relationship with the horse while they learn to cope with and manage emotional triggers. The GAIT Program currently features four horses, Kyrie, I Padrini, Skylar, and Riley, who reside at Seneca's Canyon Acres Ranch in Anaheim Hills. Seneca staff members are PATH certified therapeutic riding instructors and every riding lesson or activity has a specific therapeutic goal…so we are not just horsing around!
