The CAARI program began its third touring day at Kibbutz Grofit’s Red Mountain Thereputic Riding Center. The first picture shows Kathy shoval in the pink fleece jacket receiving the CAARI group at the Red Mountain Thereputic riding Center. In the back the horses are being mounted by children that are t receive horseback riding therapy. We met Ellen Reisal, Rafi Osmo and Kathy Shoval. Ellen Reisal, the center’s psychologist, is shown explaining the therapy and why it is so successful with the most difficult physical and emotional challenged children and adults. Rafi is standing next to her. The other photos show the children receiving therapy on the horses and how they are used.

The JNF of America has contributed generously to this site’s infrastructure and provide sscholarship money to children from the surrounding communities and Eilat that otherwise would not be able to receive this vital therapy. The results speak for themselves as do the children who are treated here.
