Hippotherapy/Equine Assisted Physical Therapy is a well-established practice with a wide variety of implementations. Physical Therapists should be familiar with indications and contraindications as appropriate for referral of services. Therapists should also be aware of basic safety standards for therapeutic riding centers as the industry is not well regulated. 3CCUs 

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

1. Identify when to refer patients for therapies with equine motion or other equine activities;
2. Identify different systems impacted by equine motion;
3. Identify general treatment strategies using equine motion;
4. Identify safe practices of a therapeutic riding center.
