Walk On Farm
"A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths;
feels your fears but fortifies your faith;
sees your anxieties but frees your spirit;
recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities."

-William Arthur Ward

Equine Assisted Activities for people with disabilities.

Walk On®

Walk On provides equine assisted activities to people with physical, cognitive, social and emotional disabilities. Walk On is organized for charitable and educational purposes to inspire people to advance to their highest potential.

Equine Assisted activities provide motivational, educational and recreational benefits that enhance the quality of life. Benefits derive from the interaction with the horse. The gentle rhythmical gait of the horse moves the rider's body in a manner similar to the human walk.

Benefits include:

  • PHYSICAL: balance, coordination, mobility, muscle tone, motor control, sensory integration and visual/spatial orientation.
  • COGNITION: attention, communication, judgement, following directions, problem solving and sequencing.
  • SOCIAL: cooperation, empathy, responsibility, respect and trust.
  • EMOTIONAL: confidence, motivation, goal setting and self-esteem.
  • BEHAVIORAL: relaxation and self-discipline.
