Animal-assisted therapy

Traditionally, mankind and horses have had a strong bond, whether the horse is used for labor purposes or interacting in the various sporting events, such as, show-jumping and/or horse racing. It was not until the early eighteenth century that horseback riding was used for therapeutic purposes.

Horses, in general are believed, by therapists, to have an amazing effect on people with psychological, social and physical problems. Some of these problems include autistic children; young people with behavioral, emotional and addiction problems; people with Cerebral Palsy; spinal cord injuries; visual and hearing impairments; anxiety disorders; adults with depression and addictions and a host of other issues. People with the previously mentioned conditions are ideal candidates for horseback riding therapy. The success of these depends entirely on whether a close bond between the patient and horse is formed.

The various fields of equine therapy include:
- Hippo therapy - treatment practiced by a licensed physical and/or occupational therapist with the use of a horse to target specific needs.
- Therapeutic riding - a trained therapeutic riding instructor aids persons with disabilities.
- Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) - facilitated by a licensed health professional and equine expert to assist in various ways.

Horse backing riding therapy has many rewards. In addition to the muscular advantages, it also provides the person with the feeling of being able to care for a companion by assisting with the grooming, brushing and bathing. The outcome of this is relaxation, and it has a calming effect.
