Depends what the injury/illness is.
The RDA does hippotherapy in which horses can be used for anything from a calming influence on a child with severe learning difficulties, to a physiotherapist for those with muscle/skeletal problems. Horses are also used for depression and Drug Rehab. So Hippotherapy covers a very very broad spectrum.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
