Children like Vicky who suffer from physical and mental disorders are those who need help to have a happy childhood the most. Vicky is our friend, and one of the best ways to improve her and other children's condition is through regular hippotherapy. The problem is that horse therapy is expensive in a small Eastern European country like Bulgaria. At the same time the state does not support it in any way. So, disabled children only can benefit from it through an organization like ours.
PQHFoundation will provide free access to hippotherapy for children with disabilities. In order to achieve this goal, minimum two of our permanent staff members must be trained and certified for this type of therapy. No trainings are available in Bulgaria. Thus, we need support to cover the trainings and certification fee, travel and stay abroad of the two trainees. After the trainings are complete, we can start working and ensure rehabilitation for a minimum of 50 children in one year!
Gaining professional experience in hippotherapy means that over time we will increase the number of children with disabilities who will be treated. Moreover, their parents, also, need support. At the PQHFoundation we train our horses by natural methods and breed them as close to the natural environment as possible. As a result, the animals are kind and calm. They create the perfect atmosphere in which families who struggle with disabilities can relax and improve their physical and mental health.
