This is a well written article that shares some of the history of Equine Assisted Therapy.
N.E.A.T. actually uses a variety of approaches in our work with horses. Our clients start out learning about horses and herd behavior. We teach clients how to groom and “tack up” a horse. We play games and do work with our “equine partners” on the ground AND we do mounted work. Clients who do the work will actually be able to enjoy a trail ride, as we are adjacent to Bartley Ranch, which offers several trail riding options. Most importantly, our clients develop self confidence while they bond with one of our very special horses.
We would love to share more about our program, show you around the ranch and introduce you to our equine partners – call us to schedule your personal tour.
