The Article describes the benefits of hippotherapy for children with Down Syndrome.

Through hippotherapy, along with aquatic therapy and physical therapy, children with Down syndrome end up overcoming their physical deficiencies, but also those related to the difficulty of integrating into society. The problems specific to children with Down syndrome (shyness, fear of speaking a word, emotional instability, self-closure, isolation) are much easier to address. The great motivation and pleasure that these children with Down Syndrome feel when they ride are very helpful aspects in the therapeutic approach.
