Offers horsemanship services: Horse training and starting, horse shoeing, riding lessons (ages 9 and up), and Therapeutic Horsemanship for people with challenges. Our PATH International coach is the first person in the US accredited in the "Ride With Your Mind" method which optimizes the rider's ability to learn independently and unlocks the horse's ability to become more athletic. She teaches at the farm and offers clinics elsewhere in the USA. In Therapeutic Horsemanship our specialty is working with individuals, small groups and families with emotional or psychiatric challenges. Horse ownership and care classes can be scheduled for small groups. There is a bed and breakfast on site; guests can bring and board their horse.
We offer our participants and riders a safe, enjoyable experience in a pleasant and serene environment. TTR's seven programs build confidence and self-esteem, improve balance, coordination, and range of motion to increase muscle strength and flexibility. Our programs offer an opportunity to become more independent, acquire new skills, take on new responsibilities, make new friends (some with four legs). Come and experience a new way to view the world - from the back of a horse. We are conveniently located on the county school bus route. Talisman Therapeutic Riding is a PATH International Center (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship). We are a worksite location for the Caroline County School-to-Work Transition Program.
The program’s goal is to build confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment. Riders also improve their attention span and their ability to follow directions. We work on coordination and spatial relationships as well as stretching and strengthening exercises.
In addition to Therapeutic Riding, TSR offers Hippotherapy, a treatment technique used by our occupational therapist to improve balance, coordination, muscle strengthening, motor planning and sensory processing. The movement of the horse is what is most important and the goals are similar to those used in a traditional medical facility. The therapist does not teach riding skills, rather she focuses on the individual’s needs and selects exercises and activities to meet those needs.
