Saturday, October 29, 2022 "Anything is possible if you know why!"

The Hippotherapy Development Association was founded in 2022 by hippotherapy practitioners from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan to develop hippotherapy based on international evidence-based practices adapted to our realities and legislation. Up until now, our professional community has already published more than two dozen educational webinars, three collections of articles, two manuals, and four international round tables on hippotherapy. Next year the first Russian textbook on hippotherapy will be published.

The main criterion for rehabilitation using the horse, as well as for medical and social rehabilitation in our country, is not the amount of help given, but the level of skill, independence and social activity of the patient. The task at hand is to create an effective hippotherapy, providing it with modern technologies, trained personnel and equipment.

Do you want to know how to do it?
