When working with children and teens who are living with ADHD equine therapy addresses increasing focus, decreasing impulsivity and improving self-esteem.
Whether leading, grooming, working on the ground or

Horses will worry if a client’s energy it too high, so they are encouraged (and willingly comply) to practice appropriate energy, “You don’t want Baxter to be afraid of you do you?”
And when they are actually able to control themselves and these incredibly powerful animals, a clients self-esteem blossoms.
