Hippotherapy, also known as equine assisted therapy, has proven to be very helpful for special needs children, it is a form of physical therapy whereby the movement of the horse affects a rider's posture, balance, and coordination and has been found to promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth. The therapy can also be used for adults suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as brain injuries and many other issues.

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Chiang Mai University in cooperation with Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Associated Medical Science, Chiang Mai University has operated a hippotherapy project since 2003 for special needs children and has worked to improve the standards of hippotherapy in Thailand.
