We selected children with cerebral palsy who respected the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The hippotherapeutic practice was performed once or twice weekly, lasting 30 minutes, comprising a period of 16 weeks. Gross motor function, measured through GMFM (gross motor function measure), was the evaluation instrument most used by the studies included in the review. Acute positive effects were observed after a session of 8 to 30 minutes of equine therapy and chronic effects after 5 to 12 weeks, with a frequency of 1 to 3 times weekly and with a time of 30 to 60 minutes on the horse. One of the main chronic affectations occurring in childhood is chronic non-progressive encephalopathy, or cerebral palsy. Cerebral Palsy has been a concern of several segments of health care that seek to study and propose therapeutic actions in order to prevent, minimize sequelae and potentiate the neuropsychomotor capabilities inherent to these brain lesions. Equine therapy is considered a therapeutic modality that provides innumerable benefits in the rehabilitation process and has been frequently recommended by physicians for children with Cerebral Palsy. It was evidenced that Equine therapy performed once or twice weekly promotes significant benefits in the gross motor function and functional performance of children with CP. Thus, it is suggested that protocols of hippotherapy intervention be performed once weekly, directly reflecting the possibility of more children being benefited from this practice, since the high cost with equipment and structure in equine therapy centers is the main impediment to guarantee the Access to treatment for these patients.
