Flying Changes Therapeutic Riding, formally Our Dream Riding, won Best on Long Island for Therapeutic Horseback Riding in 2014. All instructors are PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) International Certified. Flying Changes' owner, Kelly, has her Masters Degree in Science and is Dually Certified in Childhood Education and Childhood Special Education. Kelly is Path Certified and is also a Certified Special Olympics Equestrian Coach and Clinician. Kelly also taught two seminars in 2014 on therapeutic horseback riding at the nationally known Equine Affaire in Massachusetts.
Generally speaking, our classes will have maximum 4 students in a class at a time. The class will have one main instructor conducting the class as well as other assisting instructors and volunteers in the ring. The volunteers and assisting instructors will help the students that are struggling in the class and can provide them with the one on one attention that they may need. The students that need one on one attention will receive it.Classes are 30 minutes long and once a week. We feel that this is the best amount of time to keep the child or adult's attention as well as to improve previous riding skills and to introduce new techniques. Make up classes will be offered if an individual is to miss a class. However, in order for the child or adult to receive a make up class, we require that the instructor be provided with advanced notice that the individual will be missing a class. The arrangements for a makeup class will be made between the instructor and institute/school/parent. We also provide private lessons for those who request. If the students excel and wish to take part in the Equestrian Special Olympics, simply inform the instructor about their interest and we will follow through with the paperwork as well as adjust that individual's lesson accordingly.
