Equine-Assisted Therapy

The Children’s TherAplay Foundation, Inc. is the nationally renowned leader and educator in equine-assisted therapy, which is enthusiastically endorsed as an effective treatment tool for children with special needs.


Children’s TherAplay is one of the few clinics in the country dedicated to providing physical and occupational therapies on horseback for children with special needs. Our therapists combine a sensory-rich, child-centered clinic with hippotherapy – the movement of horses – to provide carefully graded motor, sensory, and neurological input.

From a Children’s TherAplay Mom
“Lauryn has grown so much. Not only is she getting stronger in her core area and her ability to master more fine motor and gross motor skills, she has also grown in her confidence. She loves coming to Children’s TherAplay. The fact that we travel 45 minutes each way, twice a week, says a lot in terms of our feelings about Children’s TherAplay. It’s so worth it. It’s wonderful!”

— Lauryn’s mother, Jen
