Horses offer hope and encouragement for trauma survivors. As prey animals, horses are highly perceptive to subtle changes within their environment. This sensitivity dictates how they will respond to an individual’s changing emotional state. If a client arrives feeling anxious, the horse will respond accordingly without judgement. As the client learns to reduce their anxiety, the horse’s behavior will mirror that response. The horse acts as a large biofeedback machine, providing the client and mental health professional with information and skill building opportunities to help client improve communication skills and learn how to manage turbulent emotions.
Achieving and maintaining optimal wellness is key to living a higher quality life. Everything we feel and do directly affects our actions and emotions. Our compassionate, holistic approach will help you subdue stress, reduce illness, ensure positive moments in your life, and overcome limiting beliefs and behaviors that may have you feeling unsuccessful, unfulfilled, unloved, and out of balance.
