Doesn’t hippotherapy sound just like a asking a hippo, “Yes, but how how do you really feel?”

After 8 months on a waiting list, we finally had our first session/evaluation today even though it was really, really hot.

Gong gong and pua pua were there:


Here we are on Monty, the fake horse:


And here is Shamrock, our therapy horse which we did not get to ride on, but at least we got to pet.

  1. Hippotherapy is occupational therapy on a horse. They use the horse to improve trunk strength and for Edda, to improve her hand use by encouraging her to hold on. Also, it’s just plain fun.

  2. I didn’t know this is one of the ways to interact with Edda more effectively.

    I will do more – horse rides for Edda – next time with her 🙂

  3. I didn’t know it was called Hippotherapy! Years ago, I worked at a barn with a friend who did this and Joshua’s former PE. teacher also does this full time now, but I didn’t know that is what it was called. Very cool.
