Adaptive Horseback Riding at Manawale’a Riding Center

Another great day was had at Manawale’a Riding Center for some therapeutic horseback riding. Manawale’a will work with children of all ages regardless of mental or physical challenges and are able to accommodate large or small groups.

Depending on a riders experience and comfort, a beautiful trail ride is offered which includes exercises to help with balance and coordination.

Heres video we took of doing this. Also check out the video of the safe and comfortable hoyer lift used to assist with transferring on and off their horses. Aloha

About DamonBoiser

My name is Damon Boiser I'm an Extreme Athlete for Mogo Wheelchairs. In 2003 I was injured in a diving accident in Hawaii. I'm an SCI wheelchair user. I've never lost sight of the funnier side of life and always maintain an upbeat charge 'em attitude. I've found joy in surfing and swimming, as well as martial arts. I created the tournament division in the Karate in Hawaii and took gold. I've also discovered the exhilarating sport of skydiving and am completely hooked! I enjoy rappelling too. Anything extreme I'll give it a go! Drive and passion for life inspires us to continue to push our boundaries. Anything is possible.. Aloha
