About McKenna Farms Therapy Services

Mission Statement

...to provide innovative therapy programs and resources for individuals with special needs and their families...


We provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy to individuals with special needs in a clinical setting as well as in hippotherapy.


What is Hippotherapy?

The word "hippotherapy" comes from the Greek word, "hippo", meaning "horse". Hippotherapy is treatment with the help of a horse. (Hippopotamus is Greek for "river horse".) Specially trained physical, occupational, speech, and assistant therapists use this treatment approach to achieve functional outcomes.

Why a Horse?

The unique combination of the horse, the horse’s movement, and non-clinical environment produces an extraordinary effort on all systems of the body. The therapist can modify the horse’s movement to promote specific responses within the individual. It is a treatment approach that uses activities on the horse that are meaningful to the individual and specifically addresses their functional goals. What’s more enjoyable than receiving therapy on the back of a horse?!
