Hippotherapy is a form of equine assisted therapy that aims to treat those with disabilities. It is a growing form of treatment for physical, emotional, and social disabilities. The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International and the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association focus on using horses to aid these individuals. Horses can help anyone from a child who can not walk or talk, a young adult who has become depressed and anxious, and even an adult with Cerebral Palsy. Horses do not discriminate. Just being near a horse can provide comfort.
