Therapy and Special Needs
The Gypsy Vanner Horse is the perfect breed to perform as a therapy horse. These programs improve the lives of so many people. Not only the disabled but for many other groups of people where horses are successful in rehabilitating.
Even the most willing horse will need special training to accept the tack required and to get used to the movements and other distractions that come with being a therapy horse.
Special needs may mean special tack, education and training for the person as well as the horse.
