Within the project “Including animal therapy in the social rehabilitation of children-violence victims” (contract No. 2012.EEZ/PP/1/MAC/153/034) therapeutic horseback riding and pedagogical horseback riding activities are taking place at the “Centre Valdardze” and Crisis centre for families with children “Paspārne”.

During this project, a programme was developed “Animal (horse and dog) therapy programme for implementing social rehabilitation activities for children-violence victims”. For implementing this programme specialists, from the “Centre Valdardze”, Crisis centre for families with children “Paspārne” and Talsu district crisis centre came together and adjusted the project activities for the target group needs.

While implementing this project, we concluded that for work in a crisis centre pedagogical horseback riding with elements of therapeutic horseback riding is more suitable. Pedagogical horseback riding is a type of therapy when horseback riding is used to solve mental health and social issues, but therapeutic horseback riding is a rehabilitation method when horseback riding is used to solve physical health problems.

The project is implemented by “Centre Valdardze” and the cooperation partners are Crisis centre for families with children “Paspārne”, Talsu districts crisis centre, EKT Horseback riding school and Pet Club AS (Norway).

The project is financially supported by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The total costs of the project are 102 841,05 EUR. 95% of this sum are financed by the EEA Financial Mechanism and 5% - from the budget of Latvia.
