Our seniors made the trip to GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center in Milford for an afternoon spent with the horses. Residents were toured throughout the stables and had the opportunity to learn about the different types of horses and how to care for them.
Executive Director, Martha Dubensky and her staff provided the seniors a hands-on-opportunity to care for the horses. Residents brushed the horses and were able to use different tools to groom the horses.
The alternative therapeutic experience of working with the horses brought great joy to the seniors, as they reminisced about their childhood memories of riding horses in the pastures. When the residents returned to Twin Cedars after the trip, they all gathered around the television to watch Channel 13, as their experience at GAIT during the day had been captured by the local television station. The residents were very excited to see themselves on tv!
