Equine therapy is an animal-assisted therapy that brings together the expertise of a therapeutic team of mental health professionals, horse professionals, and horses themselves to support the healing process. Therapy takes place on a peaceful farm and can help those who desire a different approach to addressing and responding to their anxiety, depression, or trauma. Equine therapy is performed on the ground (not while riding) and is a collaborative effort where licensed clinical mental health professionals and horse professionals work side by side with horses to support you as you reach your treatment goals. Equine therapy supports improvements in feelings of personal safety, interpersonal skills, emotional regulation, and positive personal growth.
