This mixed-methods study explored the benefits of an equine-assisted interactive vaulting program for children with disabilities. The program consisted of groundwork, gymnastic movements on horseback, and group problem-solving. Statistically significant improvements in nine areas of executive function were identified by instructor ratings, and parent interviews revealed themes of developing skills for social engagement, fostering relationships, and evolving emotional and behavioral repertoire.
