Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Therapeutic Riding Association “Hipotens.”
The Hipotens Association was established on 6 June 2007 in order to promote therapeutic riding aimed at persons with special needs, affirmation of all environmental protection activities, and developing love for animals.
Since its founding, therapeutic and adaptive riding has been carried out continuously under the surveillance of a professional team, which includes therapeutic riding leaders, physiotherapists, physiotherapists, defectology psychologists and young volunteers.
The Association initiated the establishment of the Department of Hippotherapy at the Faculty of Medicine in Novi Sad in the Special Education and Rehabilitation program, and since 2011 has been participating in the education of students with the aim of timely informing and adopting all activities with the help of horses as complementary methods of rehabilitation of children with special needs.
The association needs funding for safety riding gear, maintenance of horse health and hygiene, as well as supplements for horse nutrition.
The motto of the association is "I can do more and better on the back, I'm stronger on the horse's back".
