About HoofBeats To Healing (The Straighter Way Foundation)
The Straighter Way Foundation 501(c)(3) & The Straighter Way Foundation 501(c)(3)
Hoofbeats to Healing is dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding in Saratoga Springs, Utah. We use an effective natural approach to therapeutic horseback riding via Missouri Fox Trotter and Andalusian horses. Based on the theory of Cross hemispheric integration, which is if a child didn't crawl correctly their brain may not be mapped correctly.
Our Program has proven effective with things like the following:
Anxiety, Depression, RAD ( Reactive Attachment Disorder)
ADD/ADHD, Autism, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Addictions, Visual Impairment, Head Trauma, Learning Disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Bifida, Sensory Issues, Mental Retardation, Neurological Issues, Emotional Distress, Heart Attack/Stroke, and Spinal Cord Injuries
What Makes Us Different?
Research has shown that through the repetitious movement of crawling a child’s neural network connections in the brain become stimulated, organized, and better developed.
That is why we use Missouri Fox Trotters and Andalusian Horses, they have a unique gait that patterns a person while riding, as if they were crawling. Our experience using these unique gaited horses has shown improvements in special needs persons where other therapies have fallen short. We’ve seen results where people regain their ability to walk and/or talk again or do so for the first time, or autistic child becomes aware of their surroundings of life.
