Therapeutic riding can improve quality of life for those involved

Rosy Erganian, owner and operator of Sunny Oaks Farm Therapeutic Riding Center in Rocheport, Missouri, has been involved in therapeutic riding for more than 30 years. After founding and starting Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center in the 1980s, Erganian opened a small center on her property and has been helping many children and adults with special needs.

“My favorite part is watching the kids light up when they are around the horses” Ashley Eisenbarth, a volunteer at Sunny Oaks Farm, said. She agrees with Erganian in the fact that therapeutic riding is good for the minds, bodies and souls of those involved in the program.
