Similarly, Alexandre et al. The respiratory system in muscular distrophy.

The 45 agreed and their legal guardians signed the TCLE. These data show that individuals who practice Hippotherapy perform better in tests that involve balance, laterality, energy, strength and speed when compared to individuals with the same syndrome who do not perform Hippotherapy.

However, it should be noted that one of the limitations of this study is that it does not present an experimental sinvrome with control of the intervening variables, such as not having the information of motor coordination before the same begin the practice of Hippotherapy, but as a comparative study of practicing groups and non-practitioners of Hippotherapy equoterapi identify significant differences leading to understand that the realization of experimental studies can present relevant results and that equine therapy should be stimulated dpwn children with DS, promoting a greater incentive by specialized institutions such as public policies.
