In brief: Equine Therapy

Equine therapy uses horses to provide interactional experiences in order to promote insight and growth.
It can be helpful for both children and adults, especially those who have difficulty "talking" in therapy. Horses react to humans in ways that show how the humans themselves might be "stuck" or blocked. Certified equine therapists help participants process these experiences.
