Positive psychological, social, emotional, and behavioral effects make hippotherapy a fun and self- esteem boosting experience for the mild to severely disabled children, and individuals of all ages.
Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy treatment consists of gentle stretching, floatation and relaxation exercises, strengthening exercises against the resistance of the water and movement exercises within the water. It combines bathing with treatment and therapy, and for disabled children this is extremely positive.

The buoyancy of water reduces the effects of gravity, poor balance and poor postural control. It provides postural support, allowing children with cerebral palsy to exercise with more freedom in water than they can on land. It creates an environment that reduces the level of impact on the child’s joints, providing a gentler environment for children with unstable joints to exercise and weight- bear

The warm temperature of the water in the hydrotherapy pool helps reduce pain and aids relaxation. Where the child suffers from a decreased range of joint movement, the reduced gravity in a heated pool improve the child's range of movement. Where he or she is suffering from decreased muscle power, the gentle resistance of water to movement helps increase muscle power. The warm water encourages the muscles to relax and eases any pain and discomfort in joints making it easier to exercise. By pushing their arms and legs against the water children improve their muscle strength.
