Implications for Researchers:

  • More research needs to be done outside of physical benefits of equine-assisted therapy in the realms of psychosocial benefits, behavioral benefits and cognitive benefits.

  • More research should be done involving randomized controlled trials to increase scientific evidence of equine-assisted therapy outcomes and benefits.

  • Research for both physical and nonphysical benefits should include improved sample sizes, methodologies, homogeneity of populations, and use of standardized measurement instruments, and lengthened program and therapy durations.

  • Researchers should increase the number of comparative studies between equine-assisted therapy and other forms of therapy, leading to more proof and recognition of equine therapy.

  • Researchers should increase the number of quantitative studies.
