Balance coordination, strength, and range of motion improvement are goals in traditional physical therapy and occupational therapy settings. Working with horses provides all those benefits plus sensory stimulation and a range of emotional and psychological benefits.
At Equest, we take traditional physical therapy services and use the movement of the horse to preserve, enhance, or restore movement and physical function impaired or threatened by disease, injury, or disability. This equine-assisted therapy conducted in conjunction with licensed professionals helps meet a range of treatment goals.
Our occupational therapy program enhances daily life skills such as self-care, education, work and social interactions. This approach is especially important in enabling or encouraging participation in such activities despite physical or mental impairments or limitations.
