The Dynamo Stud is also home to the fully licensed and approved Equine Therapy Centre, operated as a charity through The Flutterby Fund.
Even one of our very own Knabstrupper warmbloods is included in the programme, showing just how versatile & gentle they are.
What is equine therapy?
Hippotherapy is a method of psychomotor rehabilitation that takes place with the participation of horses. It can be used at any age, but it is used especially in the rehabilitation of children and adolescents. For the youngest, contact with a horse is often an irreplaceable source of help, so it is worth learning about the possibilities and benefits of communing with these animals. Thanks to hippotherapy, it may be easier for patients to overcome their fears, build bonds, express their emotions and communicate with the world. Rehabilitation through hippotherapy helps not only children struggling with autism, Down syndrome or cerebral palsy, but also with abnormal gait patterns or after amputations.
