027 Rebecca Cook: Hippotherapy – Therapeutic Riding And Private Practice

Rebecca Cook is an occupational therapist and owner of a private therapy practice called The Right Step. She has 25 years of specialized experience in therapy and teaching horseback riding lessons. She has a slew of certifications from courses that she has taken over the years. Rebecca also provides Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. What she really enjoys though is providing therapy using a horse or “Hippotherapy”.  Unlike therapeutic horseback riding which teaches the skills of riding a horse, Hippotherapy uses the movement of the horse as a means to therapy treatment and to reach specific therapy treatment goals.
