Equine Therapy
BUILDING           STRENGTH

 

  • This treatment tool uses a horse in sessions along with a licensed Occupational, Physical, or Speech Therapist to help achieve a client’s goals and objectives.

  • A horse provides three dimensional, rhythmic movements and facilitates improvements in motor, sensory and cognitive domains.

  • The sensory input that a client is challenged with during a hippotherapy session cannot be reproduced in traditional clinical settings, making the horse a unique part of rehabilitative treatment.

  • Equine-assisted Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy has been practiced in the U.S. for more than 30 years.

Wellness Therapy 

  • The role of natural environments in alleviating stress responses is well-documented.  Therapeutic riding has been found to improve the motor skills and coordination of the physically challenged.  Military Veterans also benefit from equine therapy as a means to help them cope with PTSD. Our farm is home to horses with the appropriate temperament to do this kind of work. 

  • There is a great opportunity for horticultural therapy (HT) via our organic garden.  Horticultural therapy can play a unique role in the recovery of veterans from physical, emotional, and spiritual injuries.  Vocational HT settings allow participants to experience independent work, problem solving and learning to follow directions.

  • The therapeutic environment at Caring Corral is designed to provide a place for these treatments and services.

Equine Training

  • Our staff will teach individuals the importance of successful barn management, and how to properly care for horses. Our vocational training will include how to ride, train, and care for the horses’ dietary and veterinary needs.  We will also teach tack and how maintain a healthy barn.
