EduRide, Equitherapy and Horse Riding Lessons with a Difference

Equitherapy


EduRide offers equitherapy sessions, an enjoyable form of outdoor therapy which involves doing activities whilst on horseback. These activities stimulate the brain as well as the body. The child is engaged in an environment which provides enjoyment and freedom of expression.

Equitherapy assists in addressing a variety of learning difficulties, including emotional and behavioural aspects.

Equitheraphy supports improvement in:


• Muscle Tone
• Balance & Posture
• Range of Movement
• Spatial Perception & Body Awareness
• Attention Span & Concentration
• Motivation & Self-confidence
• Mood

The founder of EduRide, Margreet Ludewig has trained and handed over the Equitherapy sessions to Wihan Ras, a SA Riding for the Disabled (SARDA) qualified instructor. SARDA Gauteng is a Non-Profit Organisation (No: 002-825) run from the EARTH Centre (NPC No: 2013/212606/08).

EduRide offers a six month curriculum within which the child’s individual skills are addressed. A noticeable difference can be seen after 12 weeks (one session per week).

Horse riding lessons


EduRide also offers horse riding lessons for both children and adults. Lessons are offered Mondays to Saturdays, individually or in groups both in the morning and afternoon.
Once again emphasis is placed on working holistically with each individual to achieve balance, physically, emotionally and behaviourally.

We believe that the horse in itself serves as a natural educational medium to help children achieve their potential in areas such as self-esteem, leadership and responsibility whilst they have fun outdoors.

My son Ziyaad is 9 years old and started Equitherapy sessions with Margreet Ludewig in February this year. The first few month were challenging and I did not even know if we will carry on with the horse riding. We are now 6 months into it and Ziyaad is a different child. From a rather disruptive, manipulative and uncooperative child, he has progressed into a boy that has made friends with a horse named Zorro. He is responding so well and has absolutely taken to Margreet. She is so gentle and caring and Ziyaad is enjoying every session with this astonishing woman that does not give up on a child. I guess none of us should.....
