Occupational Therapy usi​ng Equine Movement

Hippotherapy is the process of using the movement of the horse as a therapeutic intervention. Our program is designed to provide several benefits to our riders including; physical, emotional, sensory, cognitive, communication, and social skills through our equine-assisted activities. Utilizing the natural gait of the horse can help address body and spatial awareness, motor planning, balance, and coordination skills. We offer our services to a wide variety of abilities and diagnoses utilizing the amazing benefits of equine movement as a treatment modality. We believe in enhancing individual connection to nature and animals to increase their overall well-being.

Farm based Occupational Therapy

In farm therapy, we teach kids life skills utilizing the therapeutic use of animals. Our curriculum works on teaching safety, work ethic, teamwork, and time and money management. Other areas include problem-solving, regulation skills, and basic animal care/knowledge while using the natural environment to generalize in-clinic skills.

Music Therapy using Equine Movement

We are lucky to provide music therapy through Elevate Music Therapy, a part of IPTA. Music Therapy using Equine Movement combines horseback riding with music-based interventions to create a highly motivating, sensory environment. This service consists of an occupational therapist and music therapist working together with a child and using music to target improved attention, reduced anxiety, increased motivation for communication, and increased social interactions.
