Equine Assisted ServicesNavigation
Therapy • Education • Movement for life
Hold Your Horses offers equine assisted services in a private farm setting. We are dedicated to providing effective interventions that help clients achieve wellness and increase quality of life. Year round services are available with heated indoor and scenic outdoor facilities.
A professional therapy team and trained equine partners provide opportunities for skill development both on and off the horse. Individuals with physical, cognitive or sensory impairments can benefit from the engaging treatment strategy of hippotherapy or may be appropriate for other services offered at the farm. These services include equine facilitated psychotherapy, adaptive riding lessons, equestrian yoga and continuing education opportunities.
Hippotherapy uses the multidimensional movement of the horse to address balance, muscle tone, functional mobility, coordination skills, respiration, and attention to task. It is facilitated by a licensed occupational therapist, physical therapist or speech language pathologist. Clients and families report outcomes that include improved mobility, increased endurance and more deliberate engagement in the tasks of daily living.
Also important – it’s fun.
