How does the therapy work?
The therapeutic value of horse riding was described by Hippocrates as” The Riding's Healing Rhythm".
The vestibular apparatus is constantly stimulated by the movement of the horse throughout
the therapeutic lesson.
The Vestibular apparatus - Three canals located in the inner ear with fluid inside, these
canals are located near the cerebellum; the more stimulation these canals receive the more
the cerebellum and brain stem are stimulated the faster formation of neuro pathways, learning, improvement of the somato-sensory system and normalization of sensory integration takes place.
Effects of vestibular malfunction
Due to the integration of the vestibular apparatus into the cerebellum (part of brain) there are many different symptoms and conditions that result as a malfunction of the vestibular apparatus. Even if the conditions are not linked directly to the vestibular apparatus the location and stimulation of the apparatus is beneficial and helps in improving all conditions.
Sensory integration is the ability of the brain to receive and process stimuli and then offer an appropriate response. (Localize, sort and direct senses)
When sensory integration problems occur the correct response is not given to the stimuli received.
Sensory Integration Location and Specification
Somato Sensory System (Limbic), is located in the area (bottom half) of the brain where the initial message is received: taste, touch, sight, smell, hearing.
