Cabalgando la Vida confirms the benefits of hippotherapy in children who have suffered from cancer 

In the framework of the 54th edition of the Congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology, several posters and oral communications of research projects led by or with the participation of researchers from the research group in Cancer and Paediatric Haematological Diseases of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) and the Paediatric Oncology and Haematology Service of the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital were presented.
Among them, the result of our solidarity project "Cabalgando la Vida", the clinical trial led by Dr. Anna Llort and Anna Saló and promoted and funded by the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona Foundation, stood out. Thanks to this project, which studied the benefits of rehabilitation with horses in the recovery of children after cancer treatment to improve their experience after the disease, it was shown that hippotherapy is safe and improves physical and mental variables, coordination and mood, as well as the quality of life of children.

"Cavall i esport", horse riding for all

Ten years ago, thanks to an initiative that emerged between the IBE and the Barcelona Equestrian Challenge, the "Cavall i esport" activity was born, which allowed all children in Barcelona to include an equestrian project in their pedagogical plan. Now these project, more alive than ever, developes at the equestrian school of the RCPB where children are offered the possibility of experimenting with the school ponies on new sensations, fostering respect and love for animals.
