This program is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy. A foundation is established to improve neurological function and sensory processing, which can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities. Unlike therapeutic horseback riding (where specific riding skills are taught), the movement of the horse is a means to a treatment goal when utilizing it as a treatment strategy. The reciprocal multi-dimensional movement of the horse helps with the development of fine motor skills, visual motor skills, bilateral control and cognition as well. Sensory processing via therapy simultaneously addresses the vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile, visual and auditory systems. Therapy is billable towards insurance. We provide Speech, Physical and Occupational Therapy. North and South Carolina Medicaid accepted. Other private insurance companies accepted too. Sessions are 45 mins-60 mins, average 25-30 mins. on a horse.Please call or email 704-641-2146 firstname.lastname@example.org

Many children develop a passion for horses and riding after participating in Hippotherapy. Children who are ready to "graduate" out of Hippotherapy, yet continue to need therapeutic support, are given the opportunity to learn to ride as a sport while working towards achieving therapeutic goals! This small group of two - four children is taught by a PATH Intl. certified riding instructor. Speech, physical and/or occupational therapy consultations are provided on a regular basis to coordinate riding goals that will assist in developing functional skills.
Therapeutic riding uses equine-assisted activities for the purpose of contributing positively to cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with disabilities. Therapeutic riding provides benefits in the areas of therapy, education, sport and recreation & leisure. A disability does not have to limit a person from riding horses. In fact, experiencing the motion of a horse can be very therapeutic. Because horseback riding rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength. In addition to the therapeutic benefits, horseback riding also provides recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the outdoors. Sessions are 45 min-60 mins, 30-35 on a horse. We start with a 45 min evaluation. This program requires rider packet. Horse N Around fundraises to help keep the cost low for our familiues. Sessions are $60 however we will ask for a copay of $40 for an out of pocket discount.
