Frequently Asked Questions
Does my child need to have any riding experience?
You do not need any previous experience to ride with THERIS. Our lessons provide basic instruction, but the focus is to provide each child with a safe environment in which to develop their physical and psychological abilities and to build a healing relationship with the horse.
Does my child need to come every week?
It is important to create a routine and give the child an opportunity to create a bond with the horse. Continuity should be a priority.
How long are the lessons?
Lessons are scheduled for 45-minutes; however, the session may be shortened if the child is under any physical, emotional or psychological strain.
How long until I will see some improvement?
Visible signs of improvement depend on the child as we all learn at a different pace and experience life individually. The progress for some could be slow, but this does not mean that it is not happening.
Will my child ride every time?
The aim is not for the child to learn how to ride a horse, but to interact with the horse and to build a relationship with it. The bond they share is the key to helping a child through their psychological, physical and emotional journey in life.
