How it Works
What happens while I’m there….
Clients are exposed to equine psychotherapy which means they draw their own conclusions from their personal experiences during the interaction with their horse partner. Clients are given an activity to be completed with their horse partner. The activity is overseen by a horse expert and licensed therapist. Afterwards, the client is then called upon to reflect on that activity with the mental health professional. The therapeutic benefits are immediate!
Why it Works
Never heard of Equine Therapy…
Equine-based therapy is recognized internationally as an effective treatment model. It works because it is fluid and evolving, similar to life situations. It works because it is monitored by professional staff that allows for client growth alongside their horse “partners” on a self-guided road to healing. Because the results are client driven, as opposed to more traditional talk therapy methods, the client has more faith in their own progress.
