Our therapists integrate hippotherapy into our patients' plan of care, along with other therapy tools and strategies. The term hippotherapy refers to how occupational, physical, and speech-language therapy professionals use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement. This serves as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor, and cognitive systems to promote functional outcomes.
The fusion of horses and learning provide students with a fresh interactive approach to learning. Students will build confidence as they learn to work with horses while gaining higher level thinking skills in a variety of academic subject areas. The opportunity for a child to work with a horse is rewarding, so let us help to join these experiences, build confidence, and increase knowledge while having a unique learning experience.
Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging field in which horses are used as a therapeutic tool for emotional growth and learning. Sessions will be facilitated by a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and an Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning.
This program will provide a non-judgmental, emotionally-supportive environment in which at-risk children can gain a respect for nature while enhancing their spiritual well-being using equine-related activities.
