HorseAbility offers a ten-month Hippotherapy program for individuals with extensive needs. Hippotherapy, when used as a tool by a licensed physical, occupational, or speech therapist, promotes motor planning abilities, and mobilizes the hips, pelvis and lumbar spine. It also stimulates the central nervous system, activates weak muscles and reduces spasticity.

Hippotherapy may be done with or without the use of a saddle, and with or without the support of a back rider. Our goals are to improve posture, mobility, balance, function and independence. As each individual progresses in our Hippotherapy Program, we always keep in mind the goal of moving the rider into our Therapeutic Riding Program.
