Therapeutic Horsemanship (TH) has provided award-winning equestrian therapy
programs for people with disabilities in St. Louis, St. Charles, Lincoln County and
surrounding areas since 1975. Therapeutic Horsemanship is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit
organization
located in St. Charles County and is nationally accredited by the
North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA).
Ranked as one of the top therapeutic riding programs in the country, our purpose is to
promote horseback riding as a recreational

On an average, 84% of TH clients are under the age of 18;
all clients have some type of disability. Many individuals with physical disabilities do
not have access to participation in recreational physical activities.
Horseback riding provides these individuals with this opportunity in a safe,
therapeutic environment.

Horse Ice Wraps
Equine Horse Cold Therapy

Horse owners and trainers have long known the
value of cold therapy.
Cold therapy is especially helpful in reducing
inflammation and controlling pain.

In response to injury, tissues release a variety of
chemicals and vasoactive substances (cytokins,
prostaglandins, leukotines) that produce a
cascade effect of reactions, ultimately resulting in
localized swelling, heat and pain.

Applying equine ice boots (cold therapy) to a
tissue injury, limits the inflammatory response by
causing the blood vessels to constrict
(vasoconstriction). This limits the blood flow to the
injured site, moderating the release of the
vasoactive substances and thus minimizes the
pain and swelling in the afflicted area.
