As the Past President of the American Hippotherapy Association, Meredith S. Bazaar, CCC-SLP, HPCS, is a national leader in using horses as therapy tools. Meredith, an accomplished competitive equestrian, has been conducting speech and language evaluation and treatment for ten years at scenic Starlight Farms with the treatment strategy of hippotherapy. She has also been a driving force in the movement to scientifically document the impact of equine assisted therapy on people with disabilities.
Hippotherapy uses a horse to accomplish traditional speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing goals through fun and functional activities. Carefully modulated, well cadenced equine movement offers a highly effective means of addressing speech and language deficits through facilitation of the physiological systems that support speech and language function.  Utilizing hippotherapy, appropriate sensory integration strategies have been integrated into the treatment to facilitate successful communication.  Sensory integration via hippotherapy simultaneously addresses the vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile, visual, olfactory, and auditory systems.  

To learn more about hippotherapy, please visit the American Hippotherapy Association's website, which has a wonderful description of how, why and for whom hippotherapy works.
