I'm assembling my arsenal with which to stave off MS and have added therapeutic riding to it. I'm so excited. The technical term for horse therapist is hippotherapy and you can't believe how many barns are now offering this. Here's a clip from one:

MS: Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies: This program consists of a 7 week session of small group mounted and unmounted activities. The natural movement of the horse has been proven to simulate the human walking gait, while stimulating neurons. It can also lead to improvements in body awareness, balance, coordination and muscle control.

Thoughts? Experiences?

Many thanks!
