For this retreat we have exclusive access to the friendly herds of EAPD, and use part of the fee to generate revenue to keep their project going.
Founded in 1998 under the directorship of Satish Seemar and Ali Albwardy (CEO), the Equestrian Association for People of Determination was born. They have been assisting children with a variety of physical and developmental issues, including autism, Cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and Spina bifida. EAPD uses horse riding combined with therapeutic riding to achieve a variety of goals to help children develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities allowing them to focus on their abilities and not the disabilities.
The Corona crisis has hit them hard with many of the schools not being able to send the children for their usual classes.
New healing modalities like our regular yoga sessions, coaching for strong mothers, one on one empowerment sessions and our daycations help to generate some income.
