Help Us Support Therapeutic Horseback Riding For Individuals With Special Needs

 
 

The team at Chill Murray is a proud sponsor of the 2018 Papa's Peeps Egg Hunt in Scarborough, Maine. The Egg Hunt for children of all ages honors the life of James Judge, otherwise known to the community as "Papa." The proceeds from the event benefit Hearts & Horses, a therapeutic horseback riding center for people with disabilities.

Hearts and Horses Therapeutic Riding Center was founded on the belief that experiencing and riding horses significantly improves the lives of individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental disabilities. For physically challenged riders, therapeutic riding improves balance, muscle tone, range of motion and strength. Whereas riders who are working through emotional difficulties quickly learn to understand their horses, a first step in understanding themselves. Therapeutic riders with learning disabilities and cognitive challenges benefit from the sensory integration provided by the horse. Regardless, therapeutic horseback riders develop an increase in concentration, self-perception and a sense of empowerment.
