Therapeutic (Adaptive) Riding/Hippotherapy promotes the use of the movement of the horse as a treatment strategy in physical, occupational and speech-language therapy sessions for people living with disabilities. Riding Therapy has been shown to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, motor development as well as emotional well-being.  Cognitive impairments are addressed through instruction in horsemanship skills and stable management. Riders have a chance to socialize more easily with others and experience human-to-animal bonding. Riding is recognized as not only an enjoyable sport, but also as a means of improving self-esteem and motivation as participants gain a greater sense of freedom and independence.
