Hippotherapy – What is it all about?

Hippotherapy uses the motion of a horse or pony to stimulate balance, tone, muscles, sensory and vestibular systems to promote motor learning.

We are proud to be working with Washington Riding Centre to be able to deliver this service to children with physical disabilities and complex needs in the North East. For more information please visit our Hippotherapy Page on this site.

Thank you so much to all funders who have supported our Hippotherapy service.

I feel very proud that she feels safe and that it is very good for her physical and emotional development.
