Horses have survived for thousands of years due to resilience, instinct, and adaptation. Equine assisted interventions are designed to improve those exact skills by allowing horses to heal the mental wounds through natural interactions with participants. Equine assisted activities and therapy allows for participants to watch and partake in herd dynamics by taking over the role of the lead horse. This encourages a deeper understanding of social cues and enables the individual with an opportunity to respond without fear of being mocked or criticized. Having an outlet such as this also allows for individuals to apply skills learned in a supportive and socially conducive environment.
Our mission is to provide quality equine therapy opportunities for any individual seeking mental health counseling or mental health maintenance services.
