Hippotherapy vs. Therapuetic Riding

Hippotherapy vs. Therapuetic Riding

Hippotherapy is when the movement of the horse is used as a treatment tool by Physical Therapists (PT), Occupational Therapists (OT), and Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) to address impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities in patients. This strategy is used as part of an integrated treatment program to achieve functional outcomes (American Hippotherapy Association, 2000).
