The study found that:

In the riding group data, while riding, veterans had statistically significant decreases in their PTSD symptoms over the 6-week THR program. Symptoms significantly decreased between baseline and week 3, F(1,17) = 10.678, P = 0.005, and also between week 3 and week 6 of riding, F(1,17) = 8.750, P = 0.009.

The longer the riding the greater the benefit.
