Therapeutic Horseback Riding at Pretty Pony Pastures


Welcome to Pretty Pony Pastures, an inclusive horseback riding facility located in Davisburg, Michigan. I’m Linda Watson, owner and riding instructor. We specialize at Pretty Pony Pastures in therapeutic horseback riding, so let’s go inside and discover why horses and riding is so important.Therapeutic riding gives persons with special needs an opportunity to participate in a sport that many people just dream about. Here they gain confidence by learning how to leading and controlling a thousand pound animal from the ground. And from the saddle. We aren’t giving pony rides. We are working with the riders to strengthen their core muscles. We are teaching cognitive skills — like left and right. And we are increasing their fine motor skills In our safe setting, we provide an environment where adults who have MS or suffered a stroke or heart attack can regain their confidence, strength and balance. Riding a horse doesn’t look or feel like therapy, but everyone notices the improvements within a few weeks. And that’s why we feel our horses make miracles, one rider at a time.
