A horse will reflect exactly what you need to see about yourself. Are you brave enough to ask? Are you strong enough to listen? Are you humble enough to learn? – www.ourhorses.org
Horses have a magic about them for any child – from the rocking-horse in the playroom to the cowboy’s proud companion. Horses have been used in therapy for physically disabled children for a long time, but it’s only since the 1990s that their use has been broadened to include emotional and mental therapies for all ages.
What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) & Equine Assisted Learning (EAL)?
EAP: An individual, couple or family is encouraged to interact with a horse/s as a therapeutic intervention to explore presenting concerns. Observation without having to be in direct interaction with a horse/s is always an option for those who initially are uncomfortable in being near or touching a horse.
EAL: For a larger group, as in a corporate team building experience, structured tasks/activities that involve the horses are offered for the group to explore their presenting learning objectives for the session.
EAP & EAL offers the ability to practice decision-making, to physically explore multiple perspectives and so much more!
EquineWorks offers EAGALA model services. There is no horseback riding and no prior experience with horses is necessary.
People and horses who’ve experienced similar difficulties, betrayals, and abuses are like two strings tuned to the same note. – Linda Kohanov
