VIRTUAL Chicago Ataxia Support Group Meeting

November 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join us for our virtual meeting at 2pm Central Time with guest speaker, Gretchen Davis:

Gretchen Davis is the administrative coordinator & lead instructor for the therapeutic riding program at Helen Woodward Animal Center.  The program provides equine-assisted activities to riders ages 4 and up with a wide variety of physical, cognitive, social, & emotional challenges.  She’ll be sharing the wide array of benefits that come from working with horses, such as increased core strength and motor skills, and improved impulse control and multi-step planning. Gretchen will also discuss some of the adaptations that help the therapeutic riding team bring the fun, joy, and benefit of horses to a population that is sometimes denied the usual scope of outdoor activities.
