For people who have a disability, the benefits of horseback riding are enormous. The most obvious of these benefits are physical improvements. This can include improved balance, trunk control, hand-eye coordination, posture and endurance. Less obvious benefits include increased self-esteem and confidence. Horseback riding also provides an opportunity for increased social skills.
