Equine Assisted Therapy Insurance

Ride free and wild with insurance

Equine Assisted Therapy has its roots back to the 1960s. It involves using members of the equine family (horses are most commonly used) to help people with physical and mental health. EAT is a general umbrella term that includes various different therapies that involve interactions with equines. Examples include: therapeutic horseback riding, hippotherapy and equine-assisted learning.

EAT has had many studies done on its benefits and efficacy for physical therapy. It is believed that the gait of a horse prompts pelvis movement akin to walking and the horse’s adjustable gait forces riders to continuously adjust their posture. Despite being also used for therapy for mental disabilities, there isn't enough scientific evidence to prove its efficacy. 

Although horses are known to be gentle creatures, there are inherent risks when working with large animals. We highly recommend professionalliability insurance and general liability insurance. Professional liability insurance will cover claims involving negligent errors and malpractice. Extremely useful for this business type as mistakes can be very costly. General liability insurance will cover claims involving third parties, also very useful as there are many variables when dealing with animals. Investing into a safety net is paramount if you’re in an industry where mistakes can be costly. Get insured today.
