In brief: Equine Therapy

Equine therapy ("hippotherapy") can be especially helpful for children & adults with neuromuscular, sensory, and cognitive disorders.
It can help these people develop social skills, body coordination, and build self-esteem and self-confidence. It can help other people improve their communication styles, as horses show directly how they're being affected by humans' behavior.
