Therapy Involving Horses is Introduced to Special Olympics Athletes in Baja California

Adrian Dominguez Sandoval, Special Olympics athlete.
Special Olympics athletes experienced the benefits of Equine-Assisted Therapy (Horse-Assisted Therapy) while attending the 2nd Annual Inclusive Reunion by the Special Care Center for Autism in Baja California. The event brought together various organizations that serve people with disabilities from Ensenada and Tecate, Mexico. One of the organizations who attended the event was The Riding Angels Association of Tecate who provided a demonstration of their Equine-Assisted Therapy service. Equine-Assisted Therapy is a treatment that involves activities with horses that promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth in people with special needs.
