Hippotherapy

Hippotherapy is a form of equine-facilitated activity performed by a physical, occupational, or speech therapist. Unlike in TR where riding skills are taught in addition to working on personalized goals, the horse is used specifically as a dynamic object and treatment tool with less emphasis placed on learning how to steer or control the horse.  Like TR, all hippotherapy lessons utilize up to three volunteers to maintain optimum safety and each hippotherapy lesson is overseen by a PATH instructor to ensure rider, horse, and volunteer safety throughout the lesson.
