How We Help
Equine Assisted Therapy
There are several aspects of cognitive/equine assisted therapy that work well with people who have emotional or behavioral issues. One of the simplest aspects is diversion. When a person is focused on grooming, feeding, or exercising a horse, their focus is no longer on their own issues and problems. Far from being a “means of escape”, caring for the horse provides an often-needed respite for the person’s emotions and intellect. It can actually help the person feel refreshed and energized because the mind has been allowed to “rest” from its current problems.
