Abstract

The Children's TherAplay Foundation is a not-for-profit pediatric outpatient clinic just north of Indianapolis that serves children with special needs. But that’s only the beginning of the story.
Children’s TherAplay is one of the few clinics in the country dedicated to providing physical and occupational therapies on horseback.
Our therapists combine a sensory-rich, child-centered clinic with hippotherapy – the movement of horses – to provide carefully graded motor, sensory, and neurological input.
