Hippotherapy is another term for horse assisted therapy. Its roots in ancient history and neurology are fascinating to me. It expands how I look at this work with horses.

The Greek word hippos means horse.

There is a connection between the function of the hippocampus, a lobe of the brain, and successful outcomes of hippotherary. Its job is to integrate short-term and long-term memory. This process allows individuals to recognize how the past influences the present. By doing this, memories are purified and become harmonious. This is a key aspect to expanded awareness which leads to knowing the beauty of who you are.

Equinection’s programs foster the experience of expanded awareness.
