We have traditional clinic and gym spaces, as well as an equestrian facility to incorporate the use of a horse as a tool into these services. Hippotherapy is a tool used in physical, occupational, and speech therapy that uses the movement of a horse to produce a desired change in the child. Equine facilitated psychotherapy uses a horse as a partner in a mental health therapy session to help reach therapeutic goals.

Adaptive riding (often referred to as therapeutic riding) is a horsemanship program that is adapted for children with a disability. Children gain physical, emotional, cognitive, and social benefits while learning to tack and ride a horse.
Hippotherapy means “treatment with the use of the horse” from the Greek word, “hippos,” meaning “horse.” It is a treatment strategy that utilizes evidence based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement as part of a therapeutic intervention treatment plan that was developed by a licensed and trained occupational, physical and/or speech therapist to promote functional outcomes related to each child’s specific needs.
