How horses help
Connecting with horses naturally inspires positive change in people's lives. Horses often teach humans how to be aware of themselves and the relationships they engage in. Working with them in session allows us to learn skills and gain insight with direct unbiased feedback. As they tend to live in the moment, horses help us to stay grounded and present to do the hard emotional work. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an experiential type of treatment that requires us to be in the here and now thus creating a natural pathway to post-traumatic growth.
