ES 9907 - Equine Assisted Therapies


An introduction to the history, purposes, theory, and methods of equine-assisted therapies, including therapeutic riding, driving, and vaulting; hippoptherapy; equine-assisted experiential learning; and equine-assisted psychotherapy. Research on the impact of therapeutic equine-assisted programs shows that participants experience physical, emotional, and mental well being from riding and unmounted activities, including increased mobility, new nuromuscular responses, and enhanced cognitive abilities. Classroom lectures, group activities, process and relection opportunities, video presentations, guest lectures, and hands-on activities with Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors in teh arena at Special Equestrians in Warrington will give students an opportunity to explore equine-assisted therapies as a topic of research interest, branch of equine management, and career development as a therapeutic riding instructor.
