"Courage is being terrorized, and still get on the horse"

What is Equinoterapia?

Equine therapy is therapy in which we use the passage and movement of the horse as a therapeutic tool, as its rhythmic pace is very similar to the way a person walks, so that we involve the client for active and passive physiotherapy time, which is very useful for rehabilitation, restoration or maintenance of movement and physical and mental abilities.

The therapeutic team is formed by a physiotherapist, an equine specialist, a equinoterapeuta and horse.
