Animal-Assisted Therapy

We offer animal-assisted therapy with an equine partner and a Licensed Mental Health Provider. For an additional fee, we also offer the ability to have an Equine Specialist join the sessions. An Equine Specialist is there to help deepen the experience by providing feedback on the equines behavior as it relates to the content of the session.

There are many advantages to joining with an equine partner during a mental health session.
Some of the benefits are as follows:

  • Horses provide an emotional mirror with which to see ourselves and provide an honest reflection of how others might view and respond to us when we are experiencing a variety of different emotions.
  • They help to create a hands-on and tangible learning experience when working on building relationship, communication, leadership, emotional intelligence, observation, and non-verbal skills.
  • They can also assist us in practicing mindfulness, building confidence, self-esteem, and self-awarenes. 

  • Due to their natural survival instincts horses can assist those recovering from trauma
    and/or PTSD to feel supported and understood.
