Business Description

The term "hippotherapy" comes from the Greek word "hippos" meaning horse and translated means "treatment with the help of the horse". Using the horse as a dynamic base to facilitate non-static postural control Hippotherapy fosters improved trunk mobility and strength which in turn, affects overall limb function. The horse’s natural three-dimensional movement mimics a typical human gait creating a gentle rhythmic movement that aids in improving overall balance, strength, muscle control and tone, motor development and coordination.
