Verify the influence of hippotherapy in the static balance of one child with Down syndrome. It was done a study of case in one child with Down syndrome, male, nine years old. The subject was filmed in anterior frontal view and profile sagittal view views in these two conditions: with and without vision.
During the video takes with the eyes closed, it was used a swimming goggle completely sealed, with the purpose of not allowing the subject to have any visual information. The selected pictures were quantified by Computerized Biophotogrammetry, which served as angular reference to verify body's oscillations in the static balance. It was done 16 hippotherapy sessions, once a week, using equitation techniques and equestrians activities, to provide physical, psychological, educational and social benefits.
The degrees of oscillation evaluated before and after the hippotherapy intervention showed lower values in the frontal and sagittal views. This study showed that the intervention with hippotherapy provided improvement in the static balance in this child with Down syndrome. Revista Neurociencias. Unicamp - Artigos e Outros Documentos.

The muscles gluteus medius, tensor fasciae latae, rectus femoris, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, biceps femoris, tibialis anterior and gastrocnemius were evaluated by electromyography using gross RMS values, which correspond to muscle activation; the evaluations were performed on the 1st and 10th hippotherapy sessions frequency: once a week , and after 2 months interval without treatment, they were performed on the 1st and 10th hippotherapy sessions frequency: twice a week. It was noted that activation of the studied muscles increased with the passing of sessions, regardless the weekly frequency of attendance; however, the period without treatment resulted in reduction of this effect. Practitioners with DS presented satisfactory changes in muscle activation pattern, in learning and in motor behavior during hippotherapy sessions. Keywords: muscle activation, electromyography, hippotherapy, Down syndrome, equine assisted therapy.
Hippotherapy and respiratory muscle strength in children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Individuals with Down syndrome may have decreased respiratory muscle strength due to hypotonia, a common characteristic in this population. To analyze the effects of a hippotherapy program on respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome. The study included 41 subjects, 20 of which were in the hippotherapy practicing group PG and 21 of which were in the non-practicing group NPG. Study subjects were of both sexes, aged years, and all diagnosed with Down syndrome.
