A.D.F. Thailand is a foundation that provides therapy riding for disabled children. The horse’s movement is therapeutic and improves the child’s balance/posture, co-ordination, concentration, self-esteem and muscle development. The horse’s movement naturally in walk simulates the movement of the human walk. The warmth of the horse’s body and rhythmic gait relaxes spastic muscles and stimulates muscular development. Only very special horses, with quiet temperaments, unlimited patience and deeply giving natures, are suitable for this work.
A.D.F. Thailand relies entirely on volunteers for its operation, and community support for its funding. There is a constant need for motivated, cheerful, and reliable people to help. It is not necessary to know anything about horses, or disabled children, to make a big difference in the lives of these riders. A.D.F. teaches its volunteers what they need to know in order to lead a pony or walk by the side of a rider.
