The project includes a training phase aimed at young people, professionals, instructors and experts in the field through non-formal activities based on practical aspects of Equestrian Rehabilitation in order to enhance their know-how in supporting young people with intellectual disabilities to increase their autonomy and social inclusion.
The testing and validation of the model will take place through the Equestrian Rehabilitation activity addressed to 20 young people with intellectual disabilities from the countries of the partnership and carried out by the professionals who participated in the training phase in order to validate the effectiveness of the model and its validity in other European and non-European countries.
