Hippotherapy

Emily has been doing hippotherapy (therapeutic horse back riding with a licensed, PT, OT or SLP) since March of 2014 and it has been such a wonderful therapy for her. When she started out she need full support. Today she had what was probably her last lesson with the big bolster in front of her and will try out the supportive Boppy pillow behind her. Riding the horse does amazing things for the neurological system and the back, neck and spine’s, ability to support the body. Emily responds vocally to songs when she is on the horse and now does so at home as well. We love Loudoun Therapeutic Riding and The Ride On Ranch for giving Emily this opportunity! Her ability to sit independently will most definitely happen faster thanks to this therapy.
