This article touches on the vital differences between many equine therapy programs. Whether you are talking about Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) or Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) or anything in between, what is your relationship to the horses you work with? Do you simply consider them tools to use in reaching a goal? Or do you respect them as equine partners?
Nevada Equine Assisted Therapy considers our horses as our valued Equine Partners. Our entire program is built on building bonds and relationships, understanding why horses do what they do and respecting the gift they give us by working with us to achieve our client’s goals. Most of our clients begin the program with herd observation exercises, allowing them to see each horse as a unique personality. Our clients learn about horse care and spend time learning to groom and lead a horse appropriately. We talk about boundaries, respect and trust. We know that without kind, compassionate and willing horses we have nothing to offer.
We invite you to come meet our wonderful equine partners. We will show you around the ranch and share more with you about how our program works. Call us today to schedule a visit.
