English Abstracts: Horse Assisted Therapy in Children with ADHS
The study investigates the extent to which ADHD specific symptoms and disorders in the social behavior change positively in connection with horse-assisted therapy. Eleven children (seven boys and four girls) with ADHD aged 8 to 11 years received horse-assisted therapy consisting of 13 sessions. In the pre-post comparison, there were significant improvements in inattentiveness and hyperactivity / impulsivity. In the area of social behavior, there were predominantly positive tendencies. Due to the lack of a control group, the results can only be interpreted to a limited extent as a therapeutic effect.
