Equine Assisted Activities

With the combination of a horse and riding instructor the participant can achieve specific goals; physical, mental, motivational and spiritual. All participants must undergo an evaluation to determine suitability to the program.

At-Risk Youth

State of Florida Department of Children and Families certifies PYAP, Inc. as licensed to provide Level 1 prevention services. Many at-risk youth are victims of abuse, neglect, or other challenging issues and often have been unresponsive to traditional therapies.

Veterans

The men and woman that have served our country, many at a large cost to themselves, benefit from our horses. Equine assisted activities can assist them physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Challenged Riders

In addition to cognitive and emotional benefits, horseback riding strengthens and relaxes muscles, improves posture, balance and coordination, and increases joint mobility.

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerois
  • Down Syndrome
  • Dyspraxia
  • Stroke
  • Paralysis/Paraplegia
  • Head Trauma
