The Calcasieu Cameron Hospital Therapeutic Riding Center provides outpatient occupational therapy services to patients of all ages, primarily children, in a nontraditional health care setting. Our center offers a progressive treatment modality for physical, cognitive, and psychosocial disorders, utilizing specially trained horses as an interactive treatment tool. The horse's rhythmic repetitive movements mimic human movement patterns, due to the similarity of the pelvic structure. These similarities are passively transmitted to clients who demonstrate improved mobility, balance, posture, and function.
