How Does Equine-Assisted Therapy Work?
Equine therapy for the purpose of addressing mental health issues typically involves both a psychotherapist and horse trainer. Horses, which might be full-size or smaller ponies, are chosen as therapy animals based partially on their ability to withstand a great deal of distraction and tolerate unpredictable or erratic behavior from people riding or grooming them. Many have been trained to exhibit especially gentle and repetitive behaviors to put people at ease and make their interactions more predictable. Just take a look at some of the programs.
Equine Assisted Therapies
Equine assisted counseling incorporates horses for emotional growth and learning. It does not involve riding. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional working with the clients and horses to address treatment goals. Activities with the horses are designed to mimic real life issues allowing the client and therapist to “see” where the problems are and find solutions that work. Clients quickly recognize unhealthy patterns and enact new behaviors. The horses only respond to sincere beliefs and actions, making them perfect mirrors of your emotions.
