American Hippotherapy Association, Inc
AHA, Inc. is recognized as part of the international community that provides education, facilitates research, and promotes equine assisted therapy as an effective treatment strategy that improves the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
The term hippotherapy refers to how occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology professionals use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement to engage sensory, neuromotor, and cognitive systems to achieve functional outcomes.
In conjunction with the affordances of the equine environment and other treatment strategies, hippotherapy is part of a patient’s integrated plan of care.
