The horse's gate moves very similarly to that of a human.  Because of this the motion of a horse works to strengthen the body in ways that no other therapy can.  Simply sitting on a horse while it walks can teach your body to move the way it is supposed to.  Paired with many other activities which we do on the back of a horse, therapeutic riding can be a vital part of recovery for many individuals.  Whether it be a stroke victim, paralysis, injury, MS, or other disability therapeutic riding may be the answer you are looking for.
