This surprising article points out that depression is one of the leading causes of death and disability among seniors. The article goes on to list several treatment options, but I would like to add Equine Assisted Therapy to that list.
Work with horses provides physical, mental and emotional stimulation, all important components of a healthy life. Gentle exercise on the ground and mounted work for those who are physically able, are part of the program,
but we also share our insights about horse and herd behavior and encourage our clients to build a bond with “their special horse.”
So if you, or someone you know would like to try something new and exciting, call us to schedule a visit to the ranch. We will show you around, introduce our wonderful horses and share more with you about how our program works. Call us today!
