Horse Therapy for Adults
Equine assisted therapy offers therapeutic benefits to adults with developmental disabilities. Even people who are more severely impacted by developmental challenges, including those who are deaf or non-verbal, can make measurable gains in quality of life due to working with horses.
Horses provide an excellent way for adults with developmental disabilities to receive the benefits of therapy in a less traditional way, which in turn can be a lot of fun.
Individuals can burn out from a lifetime of traditional therapies, so it’s refreshing for adults with developmental disabilities to work on any social or emotional deficits they live with in a way that connects them with nature, animals, and a unique, non-clinical environment.
Benefits of Therapeutic Horseback Riding for Adults
Some of the benefits of equine assisted therapy include improvements in the following areas:
- Communication & social skills
- Boundary setting & compliance
While considered experimental in nature, there is no denying that horses help adults with developmental disabilities in an array of ways, which ultimately improves their quality of life.
