Pony parties for kids
Call me to book a pony party for your children at my venue.
We also come to your venue.
Our equi-therapy (occupational therapy on horse-back) program has been developed with an occupational therapist - where the kids would do activities in a clinical environment we do it on the back of a pony :)
Equitherapy for kids
Equi-therapy (another term is hippotherapy), also, sensory integration therapy, movement therapy, is based on the movement of the fluid in the inner ear.
To be able to learn, our bodies should observe, and our brain should be able to organize and adapt these observations.
Therapy to assist with learning disabilities, ADHD, sensory integration
Research has shown that learning disabilities, such as midline-crossing, low muscle tone, attention deficit, etc. are caused by a dysfunction in the sensory integration system, which means that organizing observations are not happening correctly.
During equi-therapy optimal sensory integration will take place, optimal movement of the liquid in the inner ear, which will open all communication channels between the observation system and the two hemispheres of the brain. The learning process can now take place a lot easier, and learning problems can be addressed through different educational games, while on horseback (we bring our ponies to your school, or visit our equi-therapy centre in Glen Austin, Midrand).
Many times, children are misdiagnosed with ADHD due to low muscle tone – something that our equi-therapy also aids in (it is not just for special needs – but for the benefit of all children).
