A local ranch is using horseback riding to help children with learning disorders.

Kate Evans owns the Life in Stride Riding Center in College Station, she says their riding camps focus on the strengths of students rather than weaknesses.

“We provide riding lessons, birthday camps, anything that’s related to horses and what children enjoy,” said Evans.

For the past three years, local charities have benefitted from the center’s earnings, but Evans says the students at the center have benefitted the most.

“I’m here almost every day,” said rider Emma Stanford. Stanford has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) that she says makes it difficult for her to focus.

“Whenever I do focus sometimes I hyperfocus and I lose track of what’s going on around me,” said Stanford.

She says often times it’s hard for her to sit still but she’s found with riding she can better control the disorder.

“After I ride, it’s easier for me to do homework; it’s easier for me to think,” she said.

Stanford says having her whole body engaged with the horse helps. According to Evans, people with ADHD have special character traits that are excellent for riding.
