• Hippotherapy requires a physician referral for Occupational or Physical Therapy.

  • The Caring Corral accepts children and adults ages 2 and up for the hippotherapy program, up to a maximum weight of 180 pounds.

Hippotherapy

 

  • 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.

  • Licensed therapists of each discipline are cross-trained in the movement and behavior of the horse and in the application of the horses’ movement as an innovative tool in therapy.

  • 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.
