What Makes Us Different?

Hoofbeats to Healing is dedicated to providing therapeutic horse back riding in Utah.  We began over 2 decades ago and have developed an effective natural approach to therapeutic horse back riding via Missouri Fox Trotter and Andalusian horses. Based on the theory of Cross Hemispheric Integration, which is if a child didn't crawl correctly their brain may not be mapped correctly.

This method is effective with disabilities including, but not limited to:


  • RAD ( Reactive Attachment Disorder ) 

  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • Depression -  Anxiety - Trauma

  • Visual Impairment  - Learning Disabilities - Cerebral Palsy -

  • Spina Bifida - Developmental Disabilities - Autism

  • Head Trauma - ADD/ADHD - Stroke/Heart Attack Patients -

  • Spinal Cord Injuries - Emotional Disabilities - Multiple Sclerosis 

  • Hearing Impairment -and more.

Research has shown that through the repetitious movement of crawling a child’s neural network connections in the brain become stimulated, organized and better developed.


That is why we use Missouri Fox Trotters and Andalusian Horses, they have a unique gait that patterns a person while riding, as if they were crawling. Our experience using these unique gaited horses has shown improvements in special needs persons where other therapies have fallen short.


We’ve seen results where people regain their ability to walk and/or talk again, or do so for the first time, or an autistic child becomes aware of their surroundings of life.
