Together with the cooperation of Penang Polo Club, ACS has been instrumental in initiating the Horse Back Riding for the Disabled Programme here in Penang. Horse back riding is recognised as one of the more progressive forms of therapy. It is the use of the horse and equine-oriented activities to achieve a variety of therapeutic goals, including cognitive, physical, emotional, social, educational and behavioural goals.
The programme is run on weekly basis in the evenings of Tuesday and Thursdays and is open to all children and young adults with special needs. However, riders have to sign up for a series of 8 sessions per batch.
