HIPPO, Equine, Horse Assisted
Horses provide an excellent means for individuals to experience emotional growth. Our equine therapy program benefits children and adults with a variety of special needs. Members of our program are paired with specially trained horses to help them develop balance and muscle control, improve short-term memory and boost confidence and self-esteem.
We offer therapeutic riding activities in a safe and compassionate environment as an alternative to traditional methods. Benefits of equine therapy include: Communication & social skills, problem-solving, physical, responsibility, self-control, teamwork, empathy, respect and trust.
The Lighthouse is excited to offer many other programs including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, music therapy, vocational programs, social work, psychology services and much more! For a complete list of other programs that we provide click here.
