Equine Assisted Therapy is a great intervention for those dealing with eating disorders

This is a very insightful article about some of the new research on eating disorders and offers some personal insights as well.

We are proud of our partnership with Center for Hope of the Sierras, a comprehensive eating disorder program. Once a week we meet with a small group and address goals such as defining personal boundaries, improving problem solving skills and increasing self-esteem.  We may do some herd observation, Parelli Natural Horsemanship games or even go for a trail ride.  And we experience so many “Ah Ha Moments” – If you get going to fast, you can loose your balance and fall – If you are too focused on what is right in front of you may not plan for something important coming up ahead – other things and other people can distract us from the important things we are doing – And besides, everyone had a great time!

If you or someone you know is dealing with an eating disorder we encourage you to seek help. We would be happy to show you around the ranch, introduce you to our wonderful horses and share more with you about the work we do. Call us today to schedule a visit.
