Occupational Therapist, Tanya (Toni) Bordadora uses Hippotherapy as part of an overall occupational therapy treatment plan for her patients. Hippotherapy is the incorporation of equine movement by a licensed occupational therapist in an integrated treatment plan.
At the Horses Adaptive Riding and Therapy barn we have a treatment room which is furnished with sensory and motor equipment (i.e. swings, table activities, floor mats) and is used to work on specific goals in each patient’s plan of care. Not only does Toni have years of experience in the therapy room, but her training with the American Hippotherapy Association allows her to use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning along with her knowledge of equine movement to create functional change in her patients.
Coupling hippotherapy with traditional treatment room therapy has been proven to be a successful treatment strategy.
