Hippotherapy – a term derived from the Greek words “hippo” (horse) and “therapeuein” or “therapela” (to minister to; healing) – literally refers to treatment or therapy aided by a horse.
It is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy in which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory input for treatment of patients with neurological or other disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, head injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, behavioral disorders and psychiatric disorders.
Cradle U Therapy Ranch is a private ranch and a non-profit organization in Whitehouse, Texas that aims to provide Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding for individuals dealing with these challenges. We are therefore appealing to your kind and generous hearts to help us raise funds to support the operating costs for the ranch, including the construction of an enclosed riding arena which will benefit Cradle U Therapy Ranch clients tremendously.

In lieu of monetary donations, horses, equipment, and voluntary services are also gratefully accepted.
