The aim of the programme is to offer children-violence victims an opportunity to raise their self-esteem and decrease the violence consequences and impression to their life quality. Therapeutic horseback riding and kanistherapy work methods and elements are used to lessen psycho-emotional trauma and exclude further violence towards yourself and aggressive, destructive behaviour towards peers.
