Hippotherapy involves using the horse as a treatment tool. It is used by occupational, physical and speech therapists to develop motor, cognitive, communication, social and many other skills. The movement of the horse and the emotional bond that riders develop help children and adults with disabilities to focus, decrease touch sensitivities and use their hands to develop fine-motor skills.
