Dream Catcher Therapeutics (DCT) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation located in Pendleton, Oregon providing individuals with emotional, physical and mental challenges the opportunity to discover and share their abilities through equine activities. These goals are reached through participation in riding, grooming, and bonding with the horses.
Who should consider equine therapy?
Individuals of all ages benefit from this therapy, with disorders such as:
- Down Syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Cerebral Palsy (CP)
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- and so much more
Clinical studies have documented the positive results of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT). People with physical disabilities find new freedom of mobility, strength, coordination, and balance as the gait of the horse is the same as ours. Those who struggle with mental and emotional challenges find self-confidence, worth and experience immediate appropriate feedback through EAAT programs.
