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 means treatment with the help of a horse. During a hippotherapy treatment session an occupational therapist, physical or speech therapist uses the movement of the horse to help the client achieve functional goals. These functional goals could be related to self-care, mobility, communication, sensory processing or other skills the therapist is working on with the client. The movement of the horse is a powerful tool in helping clients achieve their potential. It is the Ultimate Horse PowerTM!
