Play is the "work" of the child (and the de-stressor of the adult). Play engages the whole person: imagination, emotion, cognition, and attention, along with the physical skills components of the game activities. Games can build in a reason for completing various ring figures, speed changes, stops and starts. Learn ideas for layering on goal-oriented game activities in a hippotherapy session.
