Therapeutic Horse Riding Instruction of Lawrence's six-week sessions meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays for children and at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays for adults at Serenata Farms. Cost is $20 per session. Scholarships are available.
A physician must OK involvement in the program, and a therapist screens each participant to make sure riding won't be physically damaging. The same is true of the SEA program. THRIL also offers hippotherapy, a specialty within therapeutic riding.
For more information about joining the program or volunteering, call (785) 841-9740.
