Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International teams at research institutions for basic research and clinical studies to explore the benefits of equine therapy. Funding is intended to support studies that will impact the mental and physical health of individuals with disabilities who are involved with equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAA/T).
The primary goal is to support, promote and fund scientific research that explores the claimed, yet unsubstantiated benefits of equine-assisted activities and therapies, leading to the discovery of the most effective methods and techniques for conducting thousands of existing and future programs. The secondary goal is to educate the public (including parents, donors, insurance companies and physicians) on research findings so that equine-assisted activities become more accessible to those in need.The Foundation is particularly interested in research that compares the outcomes of equine-assisted therapy with other interventions, modalities, and activities.
Basic research collects foundational data used to develop or refine theories. Clinical or applied research tests theories that direct practice or have a direct effect on the persons in the activity or therapy. HHRF exists to fund and support research projects that measure quantitative or qualitative evidence for EAA/T.
Equine-assisted activities studies are needed that validate:
- Horse – rider combinations
- Therapeutic Riding lesson progression
- Professional qualifications
- Lesson/service duration
- Lesson/service frequency
- Lesson/service effectiveness
Equine-assisted therapy studies are needed that validate:
- Frequency of treatment
- Outcomes of treatment
- Efficacy for different diagnoses
- Efficacy within age ranges
- Duration of treatment
- Protocols during treatment
- Horse selection for treatment
- Equine movement during treatment
- Professional competency recommendation
The strongest proposals will fully and clearly cover all information and research requested, incorporate project intent and methodology, anticipate issues that may arise and are exceptionally easy to follow from processes to activities and results.
