Share this post
Our second month of Check in for Charity netted over 500 “check ins” again and a $500 check is coming to WERU community radio. Thanks for helping out!
In March, your check-in goes to support Riding To The Top Therapeutic Riding Center.
About Riding to the Top (RTT)
RTT is a unique local resource for people with disabilites and their families. They are Maine’s only year round therapeutic riding center solely dedicated to serving adults and children with disabilities. They get people, who never dreamed it possible, into the saddle to experience the healing power of horses.
Riding To The Top has served hundreds of children and adults in the greater Portland area ranging in age from 3 to 70+ years. Their clients are referred by teachers, doctors, therapists, social workers, family members and friends.
The benefits of horseback riding are helpful to individuals with many types of disabilities, including:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brain Injuries
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Developmental Delays
- Spinal Injuries
- Down Syndrome
- Emotional/Behavioral Disorders
