Horses Like Vibration too!

I use a lot of vibrating toys with my hippotherapy kids, especially the kids on the autism spectrum who seem to find vibration relaxing. The sound attracts their attention, helping them to focus and the input makes ordinary activities more exciting. Here is a video of Maria Hurley, my hipoptherapy partner giving her horse some vibration in preparation for hippotherapy work.
I use the Princess Wand which vibrates as a ring stack.
