Therapeutic Horseback Riding Services
Agape partners with Ascension St. Vincent Pediatric Rehabilitation Services to provide OT, PT, and Speech services to their patients with the help of our horses through what is commonly referred to as “Hippotherapy”. Sessions are led by licensed OT, PT, and Speech professionals from Ascension St. Vincent Pediatric Rehabilitation. Agape horses, staff, and volunteers support the St. Vincent Ascension therapists in the therapy sessions.
The term hippotherapy refers to how occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology professionals use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor, and cognitive systems to promote functional outcomes.
