Equine programs

 

Equine therapy sessions are based on the theory that horses through centuries of development and survival as creatures of prey are highly intuitive and acutely receptive. Beloved therapy horses offer participants direct feedback to a participant's emotional and physical interactions during equine therapeutic activities. Perceptive and loving creatures, therapy horses assist the participant in building problem solving strategies to achieve short and long term goals.

Equine therapeutic activities are based on natural horsemanship activities and follow an interactive

curriculum that offers participants sound horsemanship skills and a thorough overview of their Equine Team member.​ 

The Equine program is designed to meet the individual needs of the participants- goals, objectives, strategies, and achievements are determined by participant and team. 

Equine Therapeutic Sessions

Sessions are goal centered and offer participants the opportunity to partner with their equine through grooming, desensitizing, and problem solving in each session. Sessions begin unmounted and have option to become mounted or driving after participants are evaluated on ability, needs, and goals by a PATH certified instructor. Sessions are offered as private or group.
