Benefits of Equine Assisted Therapy

Equine Therapy breaks through resistance, increases motivation, and offers a “fun-factor” rarely present in traditional talk therapy.  It is also acknowledged to be a faster way forward as it takes fewer sessions to accomplish intended work.

“Our client who never talked in the office completely opened up in EAP sessions.  I was completely amazed.”
