We are very proud to offer our Equine-Assisted Therapy program to our residents, available during the months of April to November.
Qualitative studies of equine therapy, with rich anecdotal evidence of benefits, are abundant. Working with horses offers very special opportunities for emotional grounding. If the horse instinctively perceives anger, anxiety, and fear, whether expressed overtly or covertly, a widely accepted view is that horses respond to the person’s expressed or unexpressed emotional state. Its response can direct therapy in any manner of ways. People experience immediate feedback about their behaviours and emotions from the unbiased perspective of the horse.
