The practice of hippotherapy is relatively rare. Most equine assisted therapy centers focus on therapeutic riding. Therapeutic riding instruction is performed by a therapeutic riding instructor, instead of a therapist licensed in an actual discipline. Allied Therapy and Consulting provides licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists that also have specific hippotherapy credentials to treat clients with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional disabilities. Because of this specialized focus, Beyond Boundaries often serve clients who would never otherwise be able to participate in such activities.
