Together, support and help
children in difficulty
Once upon a time there was a horse...
Rise for Kids has set up a new project at Clerfayt school. From January 2023, 10 students with extraordinary special needs will benefit from weekly hippotherapy sessions.
Hippotherapy is a rehabilitation strategy based on the horse's three-dimensional movement, which mimics the walking movement of humans. This discipline is practiced by occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech therapists who have received prior training. Hippotherapy allows the integration of several neuromotor patterns and sensory processes.
The relationship with the horse is of paramount importance and becomes the engine of the therapeutic relationship.
The benefits of hippotherapy are considerable.
This approach is aimed at the child as a whole, in his motor and affective schema.
Physically and motorically, hippotherapy improves trunk and head control, standing posture, balance, coordination, body awareness, flexibility, lower extremity strength, range of motion, muscle strength, etc.

“The child, I repeat, is the future. This furrow is generous;
he gives more than the ear for the grain of wheat.
Drop a spark on it, it will give you a sheaf of light. »
