I could list over 100 reasons you would benefit from the LEAP program, but the most compelling are:
Did you know your brain changes until the minute you die? Incredibly you can alter everything about your life experience with a little work. Horses facilitate this.
Our younger clients experience an upswing in their academic success.
Horses act as a mirror to your inner world. Working with them provides insight into your character and relationship to the outside world
Once you are a part of the LEAP community you have access to all our resources. Therapy doesn’t end with your session. We are striving to create a community that provides extended support.

Animal-assisted therapy using horses is a relatively new field of study and is emerging at a very rapid pace. With more programs turning to equine assisted psychotherapy each day, this method of treatment is poised to take center stage.Horse Therapy enhances growth and healing in ways that traditional talk therapy alone does not.
