How our programs help

 

Therapeutic activities with horses can reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress and have been shown to lower blood pressure and heart rate. Equine facilitated learning can support social and emotional wellbeing, emotional awareness, and practical life skills. EFL sessions teach competencies that can improve quality of life such as trust, connection, self-regulation, and self-confidence. Structured activities can be tailored to suit individual requirements.
