“Riding in the Moment” with Dr. Beth Fields

Participants and volunteers gathered around therapy horses at Beaming Inc. horse campDr. Beth Fields has partnered with Beaming Inc., a non-profit that provides equine-assisted therapeutic riding, to create the “Riding in the Moment” program to help people living with dementia. This is the second program of this kind in the U.S. and the first in Wisconsin!

According to Dr. Fields, primary investigator of the Geriatric Health Services Research Lab, “We have shown, through our research, that the Riding in the Moment program helps improve the quality of life of both people with dementia, as well as their care partners, so any family members or friends that attend the adaptive horseback riding program with them.”
