Therapy On Horseback, where many dreams come true for young and old. Heads Up was established in 1986 as a 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to providing therapeutic riding for disabled children.
The therapeutic effects disabled children receive from horseback riding are far reaching. The horse is an amazing simulator as well as stimulator.
Heads Up helps children reach their goals of better balance, walking, communication, strengthening limbs, toning muscles, relaxing muscles that are tight, increasing attention spans, behavior changes, hand/eye coordination, socialization, and raising self-esteem. Removing the children from a clinical environment to the outdoors on horses is motivating, stimulating, and REALLY FUN!
