The goal of Paint and Quarter Horse Foundation Bulgaria is to provide free equine assisted theraphy sessions to Bulgarian children with disabilities. Horse therapy is a well-known and medically proved method for rehabilitation of children with mental and physical disorders. However, it is not offered or supported in any way by the Bulgarian state. Our organization has already began a free therapeutic riding program. To continue giving hope through the program we need support.
8 year-old Pepi suffers from Down syndrome, has trouble communicating, learning, and understanding our world. To help Pepi we teach him how to ride. We play games, sing songs, and enjoy the contact with the horses and nature. Even though, therapeutic riding is effective, it is expensive in a small Eastern European country like Bulgaria. At the same time the state does not support it in any way. The solution for disabled children and their families is to turn to an organization like ours.
PQHFoundation is determined to provide free access to equine assisted therapeutic riding lessons for children with disabilities. By providing therapy the therapeutic riding instructors will improve the quality of life and the general health of Pepi and other children. Thanks to our supporters we run a free program. To sustain it we need continuous support for the care of the horses, their training, maintenance, get quality therapeutic riding equipment, and continuing education of the trainers.
Over time we will increase the number of children with disabilities who will benefit from the free therapeutic riding program. Moreover, their parents, also, need support. In the future this program can ensure rehabilitation for at least 50 children and their parents in one year! We train our 14 horses by natural methods and raise them close to their natural environment. As a result, the animals are kind and calm. They create relaxing atmosphere for families who struggle with disabilities.
