We will collect your insurance information to verity benefits, chat with you about your goals, and how we can help get the process started. We will schedule an initial evaluation at this time and can help answer any paperwork questions.
All paperwork must be filled out prior to attending initial evaluation, this includes a current prescription for physical therapy and medical clearance.
This is where we get to tour the facility, evaluate gross motor challenges, and make our plan for success.
Please bring all required forms, the prescription, and any other pertinent therapy or medical information to the evaluation. You can also email forms to us prior to our session.
We currently offer physical therapy only, but are hoping to add speech-language therapy, and occupational therapy in the near future.
A therapy session will include a variety of strategies to assist you in meeting your goals. This means that a session may take place inside or outside, some sessions will include hippotherapy, while others will not.
We are happy to say that we do accept most insurances, please contact us to find out more.
Like any outpatient setting, a copay may be due at the time of service; your insurance will be billed appropriately.
No, riding skills are not taught during therapy sessions as patients are not "riding” the horse. The horse is considered a partner of the therapy team; his movement is considered a tool. The horse is always controlled by a trained horse handler under the direction of the treating therapist
Any patient who will be astride a horse is required to wear an approved helmet. Adaptive or alternative helmets will only be used if medically necessary.
Each of our horses have been trained using TRT principles; helping them be more physically and mentally relaxed. They are ridden weekly in the ring or on the trail to help them stay in shape. Our horses all live together in a small herd, with access to hay 24/7 and are very happy horses!
