Equine Assisted Therapy ( We have a couple volunteers certified in EAGLA) is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, youth, families, and groups. It addresses a variety of mental health and behavioral issues, including Attention Deficit Disorder, Substance Abuse, PTSD, Eating Disorders, Abuse Issues, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Problems and Communication Needs
the world, hundreds of thousands of individuals with and without
special needs experience the rewarding benefits of equine-assisted
activities and therapies (EAAT). A physical, cognitive or emotional
special need does not limit a person from interacting with horses. In
fact, such interactions can prove highly rewarding. For instance,
experiencing the rhythmic motion of a horse can be very beneficial.
Riding a horse moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human
gait, so riders with physical needs often show improvement in
flexibility, balance and muscle strength.
Whether it's a five-year-old with Down syndrome, a 45-year-old
recovering from a spinal cord injury, a senior citizen recovering from a
stroke or a teenager struggling with depression, research shows that
individuals of all ages who participate in EAAT can experience physical
and emotional rewards. For individuals with emotional challenges, the
unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased
confidence, patience and self-esteem.
Note: Participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors and patterns. Military welcome.
