  4. 4. What is the difference between horseback riding and equine therapy? Horseback Riding is a form of physical therapy for people who have a range of disabilities including physical, emotional, cognitive, and social difficulties. Horses provide a tool for physical therapy, emotional growth, and cognitive improvement, in a unique format that is fun, exhilarating, and sometimes has the power to change a person's perspective on life! Besides the physical benefits derived from therapeutic riding, the contact with the animal is a powerful experience, and the strong bond that is sometimes experienced often has a profound, uplifting effect on people who are troubled or suffering. Therapeutic Horseback Riding can benefit people with a wide range of individual challenges and disabilities, including: • Autism • Asperger Syndrome • Amputation • Spinal Cord Injury • Brain Injury • Developmentally Delay • Down's Syndrome • Emotion disabilities • Seizure Disorders • Cerebral Palsy • Parkinson's Disease • Learning Disabilities • Stroke patients • Visual and Hearing Impairment • Speech Impairments • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder • Extended Grief • Anxiety attacks and Phobias • Cardiovascular disabilities • Chemical and Alcohol Abuse • Multiple Sclerosis • Muscular Dystrophy • Spina Bifida • And others *Source: Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association www.eagala.org www.equine-therapy-programs.com/therapy.htmlHealingHoofSteps.org
