In one study conducted in children with clinical diagnosis of DS, Schuster et al. For comparisons data before and after hippotherapy sessions, we used the t-test. In this study, individuals exhibited postural deviations evidenced by the difference in distance values and a smaller grouping of variables in the cluster analysis.

For other variables, moderate but not significant correlations were observed. For this study, we used the equoterpaia step gait. The sample was composed of children and adolescents of both sexes, selected by convenience, where a prior visit to the institutions was undertaken to present the project to the [therapy] coordinators and preselect the subjects who could participate in the study, according to the inclusion criteria described above.

According to the census of the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics 2 According to the study by Herrero et al. Table 2 presents the major descriptive measurements that represent respiratory eqkoterapia strength MIP and MEP and the P-value of the Mann-Whitney U test, which was applied because these variables pointed to unequal variances in the homoscedasticity test, as shown above.

Regardless, the values of the PG were greater than those of the NPG, showing that hippotherapy can affect this variable. The duration of each horseback riding therapy session was fifty minutes, and the interval between sessions was seven days. Horses were randomized selected for the sessions and showed docile behavior, obedience to the voice, indifference to unknown objects and noises, they leaned against on the ramp for riding, were fond of children and accepted all kinds of harnesses.

The KTK battery therefore allows two types of analysis of the results: Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract.

However, one inclusion criterion was having a minimum of 3 months of hippotherapy activity twice per week, making 24 months the mean time of this activity for the PG.
