Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) is a unique and powerful model of psychotherapy which incorporates horses experientially as the centre of the therapy session. The focus of Equine Assisted Therapy is emotional growth and healing from a wide variety of life's challenges, traumatic events, difficult situations, and personal struggles.
All ground work, no riding involved, and no previous experience with horses needed.
Horses are large and powerful which creates a natural opportunity to overcome fear and develop confidence. Accomplishing tasks with horses, in spite of those fears, creates confidence and provides wonderful metaphors for dealing with other intimidating and challenging situations in life.
Horses, like humans are social animals. Horses help strengthen our capacity to connect, to understand complicated relationships and strengthen our sense of self.
