Therapy and Services

Hold Your Horses provides occupational therapy, physical therapy and mental health services.  Our clinicians are specially trained and certified to incorporate the horse into their overall plan of care to help build skills for better daily living. Horse and clinician are joined by a skilled horse handler to create safe and effective sessions.  At Hold Your Horses we specialize in the treatment strategy of hippotherapy for children with physical, neurological and sensory impairments.  We also partner with licensed psychologists to offer equine facilitated psychotherapy that helps people move forward from trauma, anxiety, depression and the challenges of living with mental illness. The horse and the opportunity to be in the natural environment create opportunities that cannot be replicated in the clinic or classroom setting.

Clients participating in hippotherapy have demonstrated the following outcomes:

  • Increased stability in sitting to enjoy a place at the family dinner table
  • Improved head control for transfers in and out of a car seat
  • Proximal strength and stability at the shoulders to enhance reaching and grasp for daily tasks
  • Greater stability and strength to move around and explore the environment
  • Increased respiration and vocalization to interact with others
  • Sensory modulation for calm and focused behaviors
