Though most people probably think of kids and teens when they think about equine therapy programs, horses can offer a great deal to adults too.
From depression and anxiety, to eating disorders and addiction, horses can be a powerful path to health and healing in adults, as this story from Indiana Public Media explains. Building self-confidence, improving communication and strengthening interpersonal skills can go a long way in helping someone working on recovery and are all things that work with horses can provide.
Nevada Equine Assisted Therapy offers both small group and individual sessions, address specific issues through work with horses. Our clients learn about horse and herd behavior – why horses do what they do and how to be safe while working around them. They do ground work while building a relationship with ‘their’ horse and eventually begin to ride, all while staying focused on the therapeutic goals and objectives.

Give us a call or send us an email and we will schedule a time for you to visit the ranch.
