Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

EAP sessions offer an activity/solution-based program recognizing horses as natural truth-tellers. The activity is designed to expose personal and relational patterns. These patterns can be both dynamic and reflective of human-horse interactions and serve as metaphors for life outside the arena. This experiential insight gives the client the opportunity for physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual transformation. Click the above heading to find out about our current groups.

We offer free monthly demonstrations so that you can experience an EAP session for yourself. Contact us for the next date or to be added to our newsletter.

Lease Programs

Equine Assisted Learning

EAL sessions differ from EAP sessions in that the client is working towards learning goals instead of treatment goals determined by the therapist. EAL is used more in corporate groups that will be labeling their goals more specifically around their work related issues. Check the appointment tab for current workshops or schedule your own private session.
