Hippotherapy


 

Gortilea Hippotherapy will be the first of its kind in Northern Ireland. Hippotherapy is occupational therapy using equine movement. The therapy takes place on horseback and allows participants to work towards their goals during therapy. This opportunity will allow for the volunteer to support persons who have a disability alongside a qualified occupational therapist specialising in hippotherapy and to work with horses. The participants will need support with groundwork ie - grooming, tacking up and feeding as well as support when on the horse. The therapy is practiced on a one to one basis and will be a great opportunity for a volunteer to make a real impact to the participants - mainly kids.
