Now Offering HIPPOTHERAPY
Hippotherapy is a horse-based therapy where the horse is used as a tool to support, promote and improve motor and sensory control in the client. Hippotherapy is different than therapeutic riding (learning to ride with assistance) in that a therapist works with the client on specific OT, PT and SLP (motor-based) goals while on the horse. Benefits of hippotherapy may include: improved arousal and attention, improved balance and posture, improved endurance, improved muscle strength and motor control for daily activities and access to speech muscles. Your child's session on the horse will be followed with a play-based therapy session - to reap the benefits provided by the horse's movement in hippotherapy.
