An exploration into the therapeutic values of Equine Assisted Therapy/Learning and the creation of audio visual developmental tools based on human equine partnerships
Equine Therapy is the use of the horse for the physical, mental,
emotional and behavioural development of an individual. Despite
the growing recognition to the value of Equine Therapy there is
little scientific research to support the activities in this field.
This research aims to achieve a greater understanding of
how Equine Therapy benefits the individual, with a view to
employing that knowledge in the design of more accessible and
effective forms of therapeutic engagement.
This research is being conducted under the auspices of the Graduate Research Programme at LSAD, Limerick Institute of Technology and is in assocation with University College Dublin.
