Many benefits of equine therapy relate to the nature of the horses and the relationships they develop with our clients. Horses are usually welcoming and empathetic, able to mirror humans’ behaviors and attitudes which helps surface important insights.
Our Equine Assisted Education program allows clients to partner with our horses in order to create experiential and educational opportunities. This approach engages our clients in participating with their minds and bodies so they can learn by doing.
These interactive and insightful sessions help clients with self-awareness, emotional awareness, stress relief, decision-making skills, and behavioral changes that can be applied to their lives both in and out of treatment.
Equine assisted psychotherapy sessions are designed with specific goals in mind rather than general horse care or riding. It is our belief that people learn best by direct and purposeful contact. This program is fully integrated into our treatment plans, which means our Equine therapists are a part of the treatment team and align programming to the key needs of our clients.
