Changing lives with horses
Equine-assisted therapy is becoming a recognized method for working with mental and behavioral health clients. Also known as horse therapy, people might be surprised to learn that this method offers evidence-based treatment to help clients suffering from a wide variety of physical, emotional, and psychological issues.
Horses are known for their sensitivity to non-verbal communication and body language. This is incredibly useful when working with individuals that suffer from behavioral disorders, anxiety, those with language barriers, and other mental health-related issues that affect our ability to communicate. Individuals can grow in non-verbal communication and trust-building skills through their work with horses.
