What is Hippotherapy?
Hippotherapy is a form of speech, physical and occupational therapy or treatment using a horse as a healing medium. The characteristic movements of the horse are used to carefully render sequential sensory and motor input and improve sensory processing and neurological function of a subject.
The treatment is very much unlike therapeutic horseback riding where riders learn specific riding skills. Hippotherapy relies mostly in horse movement for the treatment of people with mental or physical disabilities.
