Using horses for physical rehabilitation
People with physical handicaps need all the help they can get to improve or to recover. Horses are being used to do just that and it’s being proven to work. K.C. Henry is executive director of the Horses and Humans Research Foundation. She tells Brownfield the foundation funds research into how horses can help with rehabilitation. Among the eight research projects completed is one to find whether young people with cerebral palsy improve their stability by therapeutically riding horses. The organization is constantly looking for support and for volunteers.
