EQUINOTHERAPY

What is it?
The term Equinotherapy refers to the different therapeutic modalities that use horses as their main working tool.
Equinotherapy is the way to work with the patient and the saddle, and hippo therapy is the work of both, patient and therapist, riding a horse blanket (they are patients who can’t hold themselves on a horse).

Therapeutic Principles

  • Horse heat transmission. The horse’s temperature is 38,8ºC
  • Transmission of rhythmic impulses during the progress, approximately about 100 impulses/minute
  • It executes a walking pattern similar to human. These help people who can’t walk well.
