Equine Therapy

 

Equine therapy is the use of horses to represent metaphorical experiences to stimulate emotional growth, which is vital in the recovery from drug addiction.

Equine therapy has been proven to assist clients in developing the following skills: confidence, self-efficacy, self-concept, communication, trust, perspective, decreased isolation, self-acceptance, impulse control, social skills, boundaries, spiritual connection, and more.

Each client’s interaction with the horse allows a trained therapist to observe their behavior, emotional reaction, and thought patterns in order to establish healthy relationships with themselves, friends, and family.
