  1. Effects of therapeutic horse-riding program on the walking ability of students with intellectual disabilities

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ok-Deuk Kang

    The purpose of this study was to determine if an 8-week therapeutic riding (TR) program was effective in improving the walking ability of students with intellectual disabilities. Thirteen students diagnosed with intellectual disabilities participated in the TR program. TR sessions were...

  2. Increased Rider Weight Did Not Induce Changes in Behavior and Physiological Parameters in Horses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: JanneWinther Christensen, Suzie Bathellier, Marie Rhodin, Rupert Palme, Mette Uldahl

    Recent studies have reported significant alterations in horse physiological and gait parameters when exposed to increased rider weight during moderate to high intensity exercise. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of increased rider weight (+15% and +25% of the regular rider’s...

  3. Physical therapy with hippotherapy compared to physical therapy alone in children with cerebral palsy: Systematic review and meta‐analysis

    | Contributor(s):: Santos de Assis, Gustavo, Schlichting, Tatiane, Rodrigues Mateus, Beatriz, Gomes Lemos, Alana, dos Santos, Adriana Neves

  4. Physical therapy treatments incorporating equine movement: a pilot study exploring interactions between children with cerebral palsy and the horse

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Lightsey, P., Lee, Y., Krenek, N., Hur, P.

    BACKGROUND: Physical therapy treatments incorporating equine movement are recognized as an effective tool to treat functional mobility and balance in children with cerebral palsy (CP). To date, only a few studies examined kinematic outputs of the horses and children when mounted. In this pilot...

  5. Rein Tension in Transitions and Halts during Equestrian Dressage Training

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Agneta Egenvall, Hilary M. Clayton, Marie Eisersiö, Lars Roepstorff, Anna Byström

    In dressage, the performance of transitions between gaits and halts is an integral part of riding sessions. The study aimed to evaluate rein tension before, during and after the transitions between different gaits and the transitions into halts. The kinematic (inertial measurement units) data...

  6. Smartphone-Based Inertial Odometry for Blind Walkers

    | Contributor(s):: Ren, Peng, Elyasi, Fatemeh, Manduchi, Roberto

  7. Is the rotarod test an objective alternative to the gait score for evaluating walking ability in chickens?

    | Contributor(s):: Malchow, J., Dudde, A., Berk, J., Krause, E. T., Sanders, O., Puppe, B., Schrader, L.

  8. What can kinematics tell us about the affective states of animals?

    | Contributor(s):: Guesgen, M. J., Bench, C. J.

  9. Electromyographic analysis of muscle activation of the trunk and lower limbs during human gait and hippotherapy using different ride mount materials

    | Contributor(s):: Silva, M. A. B., Lupianhes, A. F. G., Lage, J. B., Sande, L. A. P., Rosa, R. C., Lombardi, L. A., Espindula, A. P.

  10. Irish Equine Industry Stakeholder Perspectives of Objective Technology for Biomechanical Analyses in the Field

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Sonja Egan, Pieter Brama, Denise McGrath

    Wearable sensing technologies are increasingly used in human and equine gait research to improve ecological validity of research findings. It is unclear how these tools have penetrated the equine industry or what perspectives industry stakeholders’ hold in relation to these relatively new...

  11. Gross Motor Skills and Gait Performance in Two- and Three-year-old Children With Developmental Delay Participating in Hippotherapy

    | Contributor(s):: Brady, H. A., James, C. R., Dendy, D. W., Irwin, T. A., Thompson, L. D., Camp, T. M.

  12. Gait and Gross Motor Improvements in a Two-Year-Old Child With Arthrogryposis After Hippotherapy Intervention Using a Norwegian Fjord

    | Contributor(s):: Heidi A. Brady, C. Roger James, Doug W. Dendy, Tangi A. Irwin, Colleen A. Swiacki, Leslie D. Thomspon, Tammy M. Camp, Hyung Suk Yang, Kinyata J. Cooper

    A 2-year-old child with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) was prescribed occupational therapy using hippotherapy intervention. Multiple joint contractures present at birth affecting joint function are characteristics of AMC. Twenty-five 30-min hippotherapy sessions were conducted. The...

  13. Gymnastic Training of Hippotherapy Horses Benefits Gait Quality When Ridden by Riders with Different Body Weights

    | Contributor(s):: de Oliveira, K., Clayton, H. M., Dos Santos Harada, É

  14. Can Individuals with Down Syndrome Benefit from Hippotherapy? An Exploratory Study on Gait and Balance

    | Contributor(s):: Portaro, S., Cacciola, A., Naro, A., Cavallaro, F., Gemelli, G., Aliberti, B., De Luca, R., Calabrò, R. S., Milardi, D.

  15. Assessment of mobility and pain in broiler chickens with identifiable gait defects

  16. The Effect of Training on Stride Duration in a Cohort of Two-Year-Old and Three-Year-Old Thoroughbred Racehorses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Rebecca S. V. Parkes, Renate Weller, Thilo Pfau, Thomas H. Witte

    Objective gait monitoring is increasingly accessible to trainers. A more comprehensive understanding of ‘normal’ gait adaptations is required. Forty two-year-old thoroughbred racehorses were recruited when entering training and followed for 22 months. Gait analysis was performed by...

  17. In search of the behavioural correlates of optical flow patterns in the automated assessment of broiler chicken welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Dawkins, Marian Stamp, Cain, Russell, Merelie, Kathryn, Roberts, Stephen J.

    Assessment of chicken welfare using camera surveillance of behaviour has great potential as a supplement to good stockmanship and as an aid to improving flock management. Suitable cameras are now readily available and the automated analysis of the lengthy video sequences from the cameras can be...

  18. Three-dimensional analysis of horse and human gaits in therapeutic riding

    | Contributor(s):: Uchiyama, Hidehiko, Ohtani, Nobuyo, Ohta, Mitsuaki

    Therapeutic horse riding or hippotherapy is used as an intervention for treating individuals with mental and physical disabilities. Equine-assisted interventions are based on the hypothesis that the movement of the horse's pelvis during horseback riding resembles human ambulation, and thus...

  19. The role of biomechanical analysis of horse and rider in equitation science

    | Contributor(s):: Clayton, Hilary M., Hobbs, Sarah-Jane

    Equestrian sports are unique in that they involve the participation of two athletes that differ greatly in morphology yet are able to move together harmoniously; experienced riders not only move in phase with the horse, they can even improve the consistency of the horse’s movements. The motion of...
