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?!
