Share Article

A new episode of the show will help detail the connection between humans and horses.

From his performance as the endlessly-peppy Chris Traeger in Parks and Rec to his turns in the classic Brat Pack flicks The Outsiders, St. Elmo's Fire, and The Breakfast Club, Rob Lowe has captivated audiences for more than three decades. He has recently served as the host of "Informed," featuring a series of timely topics that will help viewers stay up-to-date and educated on many recent societal developments. On an upcoming episode of "Informed," the program will explore the benefits of equine therapy.

Equine therapy (also known as equine-assisted therapy or EAP) is designed to assist children and adults with special needs or anxiety issues. This therapy can especially benefit children with autism who may have trouble constructively expressing their emotions or connecting with others. By participating in grooming, walking, and even riding activities with large and gentle horses, children with autism can learn more about themselves in a relaxing and judgment-free environment.

Equine therapy is also helpful for children and adults dealing with physical disorders like cerebral palsy or recovering from injuries like dislocated hips. Horseback riding can use many infrequently-used muscles, helping build core strength and increase endurance in an enjoyable and nature-centered way.

This new program promises to be informative and engaging. The "Informed" series is independently produced and delivered to Public Television PBS Member stations across the US.
