CABALGANDO LA VIDA is the first solidarity project with positive social impact in Barcelona that was born in the RCPB Foundation. The chosen project is a study of hippotherapy with children who have undergone oncological treatment. The program of assisted therapy with horses will evaluate if it can alleviate and minimize the alterations of those affected.
The study, which has the support of the Sant Joan de Dèu and Vall d’Hebron hospitals, the Spanish Association Against Cancer, the Gimbernat University Schools and the Federica Cerdá Foundation, will develope over a year and the results will be announced by the end of 2020.

The children's area will be represented by the Little Riders Corner by Massimo Dutti and theTheodora Foundation. The younger guests will enjoy a Pony Park where he will receive their "equestrian baptism" and will have their first contact with horses. They will also have fun in the play area, with crafts and artistic functions, carried out by the Theodora Foundation..
We also collaborate with Mary's Meals and ADE, Association in Defense of the Equidae.
Seven years ago, thanks to an initiative that emerged between the IBE and the Barcelona Equestrian Challenge, the Pony Park activity was born, which allowed all children in Barcelona to include an equestrian project in their pedagogical plan. Until last year, the children of Barcelona received their equestrian baptism in the facilities of the Poni Club de la Oreneta. Now these children attend the equestrian school of the RCPB where they are offered the possibility of experimenting with the school ponies on new sensations, fostering respect and love for animals.
