During the end of the 1950s doctors, therapists, educators and instructors discovered the benefits and therapeutic properties of the relation between horses and human. Since the beginning of the therapeutic horsemanship a tremendous spectrum has been developed and this therapy supported by horses is accepted and accredited around the world.
