Equine Assisted Therapy

 

Equine Assisted Therapy is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact. It harnesses the connection between people and horses to help clients reveal their own stories, gain insight into their issues, process painful experiences and look at ways to change inappropriate/ineffective behaviours, all within a non-threatening environment.

Clients participate in professionally supported, simple and safe non-ridden activities with the horses, and receive immediate, non-critical feedback through the way the horses respond. Issues that arise during the activity are linked with the larger ongoing issues within the client’s life, and the special bond that quickly grows between horse and client becomes a catalyst for working through the issues raised and moving towards improved functioning, growth and change.
