Songs to play at horse therapy?
 
Me and a friend have been given the task to compile a list of songs to play at horse therapy where we work. I need suggestions. I figured I'd ask you all for help! :)

Any ideas? Country is preferred. Rap or hard rock is... Well, we'd consider it, gotta be fair, LOL.

=) I love riding to Enya! Meditating, too.

What kind of therapy is it?

I think knowing the therapy goals would help...

IOW -

Are these kids overcoming physical disabilities?

Are these shy kids learning to come out of their shell and interact?

Are these people learning to deal with aggression and/or anger issues?

All of the above. But we don't really need anything passionate or inspirational... We're just bored. LOL

At the riding school I'm attending we play TONS of Johnny Cash. The horses love it, we love it...It works well and people who like country like it as do people who like rock.

Some inspirational type country songs, I'm still thinking (I usually listen to not family friendly stuff when I ride lol)
Travis Tritt - It's a great day to be alive
Alabama - Angels among us
Garth Brooks - The River
Rascal Flatts - My Wish
Tim McGraw - Live like you were dying
LeeAnn Womack - I hope you dance

Fun country songs, more upbeat
Dwight Yoakum - Guitars, Cadillacs (old but a fun one)
Toby Keith - American Ride
Craig Morgan - International Harvester

I'll have to look into some of his music... all I know is 'Ring Of Fire'. Also, so cool that you're in Dillon- I spent the summer in Helena being a live-in student to learn horse training this past summer. Love the area.

You're welcome. That's the kind of stuff I play when lesson kids are here, when it's just me not so much :lol:

It's all very cowboy-ish

I love Dillon. I'm from SoCal so Montana is a million times better :)
