Hippotherapy

Hippotherapy is therapy made by the sensibility and intelligence of the horses. It is based on the mental and physical relationship between the horses and the rider.

The good thing about the hippotherapy is that the horse moves at a constant pace with the same notion and therefore his actions are predictable.
This allows the rider to easily control the horse as well as have a sense of comfort and security.

Horses are very sensitive which makes it very possible for the horses and the riders to form a relationship.

Hypo therapy can be used with three types of people.

1. The first type of hypo therapy is the most extreme, in which the rider has to start learning about the horse in hopes to build a relationship with it. The rider is introduced to the horse and is shown where and how the horse lives. Then the rider slowly starts to ride. The horse with the instructors help.

2. The second type is teaching therapy where the rider can control his horse with the end goal of improving the body disability.

3. The third type is when the rider is at the stage where he is comfortable with the horse and has achieved autonomy while riding. And therefore begins to set targets in ways the rider can grow and develop.
