What We Do – 100 Reasons to Work With Us

what we do

Identify Underlying Emotional Issues

Quite often, horses get to core issues that years of talk therapy have been unable to access. Equine therapy is physical and allows patients to retrieve information about themselves that may be covered up by years of defence mechanisms. If traditional counselling stalls, I recommend that my patients spend some time with our therapeutic horses. They really do work miracles.

Teach Coping Skills & Personal Boundaries

Horses act as mirror to your mental state. Anger, domination and bullying will never get a horse to do what you want it to do. Patients have to learn to connect with the horses in a positive manner. These skills are transferable to personal and work environments, creating successful coping mechanisms where none existed before.

Overcome Fears & Learn to Trust

For many people fear is at the heart of their challenges. Working with horses allows patients to feel the fear, release their death grip on perceived control and allow themselves to develop a relationship of trust with these powerfully sensitive creatures. Equine therapy enables clients to overcome old habits in an unfamiliar environment that allows them to be vulnerable.
