The Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center offers 3 forms of equine-assisted therapies: (1.) Therapeutic Riding, (2.) Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and (3.) Hippotherapy.

(2.) Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy information coming soon.

(3.) Hippotherapy is the use and manipulation of equine movement by a licensed occupational therapist, physical therapist or speech-language pathology processionals guided by evidence based practice and clinical reasoning.  The therapist will utilize the horse to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems to achieve functional outcomes and client's goals.  Client goals are centered around functional participation in everyday life--not towards riding skills or horsemanship.  For more information about Hippotherapy, please talk to our Occupational Therapist.
