What is Hippotherapy? Hippotherapy is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy in which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory input. A foundation is established to improve neurological function and sensory processing, which can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities. The movement of the horse is a means to a treatment goal when utilizing hippotherapy as a treatment strategy. (‘Hippo’ is derived from the Greek word ‘hippos’ meaning horse.)
