On June 8, ten Rimland clients and several staff members traveled to Lake Forest to experience the Equestrian Connection, an organization that specializes in equine therapy programs for individuals with special needs. Equestrian Connection believes that individuals with special needs can connect with horses, therapists, and each other to help improve their lives.
The horses are specially trained and very calm, ensuring a comfortable, inviting atmosphere for groups and individuals from the ages of 16 months to 85 years old. During the visit, the Rimland contingent engaged with the horses in various ways, including riding, grooming, trivia, and horse games.
Therapeutic activities throughout the day were enhanced by lunch and beautiful weather.
