Equinapy Benefits

Equinapy is a term coined for equine-assisted therapy that emphasizes a

spirit of determination and excellence in spite of disabilities.

 

Equinapy sessions are therapy sessions that include all aspects of equine-assisted

therapy with a spirit of determination and excellence in spite of disabilities.

Equinapy is not to be confused with either hippotherapy or riding lessons.

Hippotherapy is only the use of the movements of the horse to facilitate physical

movements of the person and must be done under the direct supervision of an

occupational therapist.  Equinapy sessions engulf a wide range of activities from

motor development to social development and more, from both the unmounted and

mounted positions. Therapy riding is fun but it also works towards the rider's goals.

 

Parents / Riders: Please remember that these sessions may look like fun, but in

reality they are hard work for the one enduring them. Although the horses help

make a huge difference both in healing and in attitude, there will be aspects of the

therapy that can be frustrating, overwhelming, painful and physically demanding
