Smile Animal Assisted Therapy research: online survey

I'm part of a university sponsored animal assisted therapy research project to better understand the benefits of equine therapy. There is very little hard evidence to prove it's effectiveness, yet if you talk to anyone who has had it, they're overwhelmingly positive . This is why our short, easy to take online survey is important. We are looking for physically disabled adults, 18yrs and older who have had experience with equine (and/or canine) therapy to take the survey. Please feel free to post this link or send it to anyone you think would be appropriate.

Equine Therapy Research

Recently, I wrote a blog on equine therapy research for psychcentral. As part of the blog, I cite several equine therapy research studies.

Hopefully this helps your efforts:

Will add that I worked at a therapeutic riding center for over 2 years and the difference in one session (once a week) was incredible. In their mental health, physical health, and emotions too. Horses just.. level us all out. They're healers, no doubt about it.

If you have a horse, you know that for a fact.
