Hippotherapy is a term that refers to the use of the movement of the horse as a treatment tool by Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists to address impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities in patients with neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction. Hippotherapy is used as part of an integrated treatment program to achieve functional outcomes. In hippotherapy, the patient engages in activities on the horse that are enjoyable and challenging. In the controlled environment, the therapist modifies the horse's movement and carefully grades sensory input. Specific riding skills are not taught, but rather a foundation is established to improve neurological function and sensory processing. This foundation can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities.
